Applications for Creativity Grants are due on leap-year day *Monday,
February 29*. Make sure to file your submission through the Firefly Art
Grants Web Portal <http://grants.fireflyartscollective.org/> before
midnight on Monday night to be considered. A reminder: *Please do NOT
include any identifying information about the artist(s) in your document* —
our committee process is screened so that all applicants are anonymized.
Your account provides all of the information we need.
*What Makes A Great Submission?*
We get a lot of applications here at Art Grants HQ, and we also get a lot
of people asking us, what does a good application look like? We thought,
why not show you? We picked out two excellent and funded applications from
last year and got permission from the artists to share them with you. A
good proposal contains detail (check the bullet list on the website
<http://fireflyartscollective.org/art-grants/creativity-grants/> for what
to include) but it need not contain masterful or technically-perfect
drawings. Make us believe you can do it!
Check out these two great examples:

This is just a friendly reminder that applications for the Ivory and Temple
art grants were due yesterday. But - seeing as it was a holiday - we
decided to extend the deadline a day.
Ivory and Temple grant applications are now due* TONIGHT*. We'd really like
them in by 11:59pm, but we will accept them until the following morning at
8am for the late-night crew.
Submissions this year are being handled through the Firefly Art Grants Web
Portal <http://grants.fireflyartscollective.org/>. If you signed up in
2015, your accounts are no longer active. Please sign up again so we are
sure to have your most current information on-file!
For more information, please visit the following web page: Firefly Art
Grants Overview <http://fireflyartscollective.org/art-grants/>, or contact
us at grants(a)fireflyartscollective.org.
Don't be shy about submitting to Ivory if you aren't sure whether your
project is better suited for Ivory or Creativity. Ivory submissions that
don't get funded can be automatically resubmitted as Creativity projects
(with $700 max funding instead of $1000).
Additionally, if you think your submission is going to be -right at the
deadline- or otherwise barely make it in, please let us know! We definitely
do want your submissions.
