Puffin Foundation 2020 & 2021 Grant Updates

September 24, 2020

Important Information about Puffin’s 2021 Artist Grant Cycle

Due to the Corona Virus we are only considering new proposals in Video/Film and arts-related Environmental projects for 2021. “New” applicants in other disciplines will not be considered. The primary focus of your proposal must be video/film. For example, please do not apply for a video component of a theater project, or apply for a musical score for a video work.

2020 Artist Grant Cycle

We are also pleased to open up the application process to artists in the fields of music, photography and theater. However, this is only for previous applicants who submitted proposals in 2020 that we were not able to review due to the pandemic. This opportunity does not apply to the applicants from 2020 who received an acceptance or formal rejection from Puffin.

We ask that all proposals reflect the reality of our current circumstances, and take into account the possibility of ongoing restrictions on public gatherings, physical exhibitions, and the like. Puffin’s mission to support the arts and artists is more vital than ever now. As society re-imagines public life, social gatherings, and the future of artistic performance and exhibition, we look forward to reading about what your work looks like at this moment, and how it can be shared.

Please review our FAQ’s for information about how and when to submit your proposal.
