Funding: 7th Annual Manifest Prize, Cincinnati, Ohio

Funding: 7th Annual Manifest Prize, Manifest, Cincinnati, Ohio

Deadline: October 1, 2016

Open to works of any media, any genre/style, any size… One work will be selected for the award, featured in the gallery, and published. Ten semi-finalist works will also be recognized and published.

In 2015 we were excited to announce that the annual Manifest Prize (ONE) award was increasing to $5,000. This underscores our non-profit organization’s strong desire to reward, showcase, celebrate, and document the most exceptional artwork being made today, and to do this in a tasteful non-commercial public context. Further, it is to incentivize the creation of excellent work. Manifest’s mission is centered on championing the importance of quality in visual art. This project is one aspect of the realization of that mission and we are happy our board of directors has approved the continuation of the increased award amount.

With this we opened the project to a nearly year-round submission process, pausing only a couple months to process the jury through a large panel of volunteer jurors from around the U.S. and beyond, and then to select and present the prize winner at the gallery.

The entry process for the 7th annual Manifest Prize award (ONE 7) is now open.
