FUNDING OPP: big money for young ceramic artists or potters

via akimbo -

Call for Submissions: The Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramists 2007
As the only national award for young ceramic artists or potters, The Winifred Shantz Award presents $10,000 annually to an artist to both recognize achievement and invest in the future.

Plant-Creature, by 2006 winner Ying-Yueh Chuang

The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery is looking for submissions from Canadian artists working in ceramics and potters who have been working for a minimum of five years and a maximum of ten years in a productive studio capacity. (I guess this isn't for hobby ceramists who dabble, like me!)
This award is designed to allow the recipient time away from the studio, travel for career development, connect with mentors, visit other studios, study museum collections, investigate kiln sites, or to perform research that will further in-studio production. It may also be used for international residencies or symposia. This award isn't supposed to be used for tuition purposes, and you can find out more info on this award on the Canadian Clay & Glass website.
