This year's prize is for photography.

This is a string instrument scholarship. To be considered for this scholarship, you must be studying viola, violin, violoncello or bass at an undergraduate or graduate level. This is not a need-based scholarship and you are not required to live in a particular region of the country. The award varies from year to year depending on funding.

Describe your intentions for the work.

The focus is on current or recently completed work (within the last two years).

Applications will be accepted beginning December 1, 2017.

Oh my word. You said things I’ve tried saying many times before, but you did it so well and so much better. Amazing read. So packed with “amen” moments.

This was so good. I am always so impressed by my fellow mothers of more than one child (it’s true – one is so simple) who can produce creative works. My husband claims to be supportive of my dreams, but really has no clue how much I’ve sacrificed my own life and dreams to support him as wife and mother. I encourage him to go to that multi-day cross-country conference, but then hear complaints when I speak aloud my dream of going away alone for a couple days when the baby no longer needs me so desperately.
Thank you for this article. You put into words so many of my own thoughts.
And about the underwear, you may never be able to train your husband to pick it up. My own cannot see the the small bits and pieces of his grooming that he leaves behind. His eyes are only open to the details that matter to him. Tiny, infuriating hairs will never fall into that category.

Winners will receive $4,000 in cash awards and be featured in the NYC4PA Online Gallery.

Fee is $15 for 2 images of artwork.

You should focus on as many scholarships and grants as possible because it will allow you to save a tremendous amount of money. This is free money that is given out by the government, companies, organizations and schools to help make a higher education more affordable. No rules exist in terms of how many you can apply for, which means you need to apply for as many as possible. The more you apply for, the better you improve your odds of getting some of the free money that is handed out every year.

All artists 18 and over may enter 2D works in all types of media.

Thank you for this. The demands of motherhood are made so much greater by convention and the expectations of others. “Do what you want” is more than a day-to-day exhortation; it’s a way of life. It is the artist’s job to question, so why not question everything – when and how and why and whether she really ought to do the things that other people (non-artists, non-writers, non monsters mostly) decided are required of mothers, adults, artists, Americans, humans? It seems to me that one of the most unsafe things we can do is pour into our children the idea that they ought not question or disturb.

$35/3, $10 for each additional image.

Extensive marketing of the artists and exhibit worldwide.

Dee, I think you might be adding layers of malice to her husband’s behavior. In the metropolitan area where I live, sadly, it is quite common for a working person to leave home at 5am for a 2 hour commute, work a full day in early career (as her husband is), and commute home 2 hours. I think Rufi’s questions about the possibility that it’s subversive to believe that the selflessness required to be a good mother (by which I don’t think she means picking up underwear) and the selfishness required to be a good, or even productive, artist can coexist.

Submissions can be representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction.

Artists from around the world are welcome to submit their work.

The more financial aid you can secure, the less you will have to rely on student loans. Try out all avenues when it comes to getting scholarships for your art, music or film education – even if it means thinking outside the box or submitting your work into a competition.

Winning artwork (first place) will be on the poster of the show.

A quick glance at tuition costs at any school will tell you that the cost of education is high. Particularly in the fields of art, music and film, it can be even more expensive when you want to attend the top schools in the country. While there are scholarships and grants out there for you to apply for, you need to concentrate on the ones that are particularly geared for women, allowing you to access more money for college.
