Rhizome is accepting applications for its 2015 net art microgrants
Rhizome, the new media non-profit, is now accepting proposals for browser-based work, and doling out five $500 microgrants to qualified artists.
The grants are meant to provide support for smaller scale endeavors, and serve to buy domains and cut production costs.
Last year, the winners of the microgrants were Deanna Havas and Jack Kahn's art criticism PDF, Lena NW and Julia Kunberger for Viral, and untitled Twitter hack by Martha Hipley. Ben Grosser's Music Obfuscator and Angela Washko's BANGED also received awards.
The microgrants are one of the three grant programs Rhizome offers. The Rhizome Commissions Program and the Prix Net Art give more substantial funding to larger projects. For the Prix, $10,000 is awarded for "outstanding work and future promise." Net art veterans JODI and Kari Altmann were last year's recipients.
The deadline for submission for the micro grants is July 23, 2015.
