Visual Supply Co., the makers of the popular VSCO Cam smartphone app, has announced the VSCO Artist Initiative which is a $100,000 (~£60,082/~€71,757) scholarship fund "providing artists the resources to pursue their creative vision."
The initiative was set up in order to "honor art and artist by discovering, funding, advising and promoting creatives from all corners of the globe." It's initially funded with $100,000 and the idea is that profits from prints and exhibitions will be reinvested, making the VSCO Artist Initiative a sustainable project and providing support for more artists in the future.
Recipients will document their ideation and creation process on VSCO Grid?, with the end result sold via the VSCO Store and physical gallery exhibitions. Profits are divided between the artist and a reinvestment in the Initiative, enabling future projects for other artists. In this manner, the creative community can build a growing and sustainable movement built upon principles of integrity and artistry.
If you could do with a few extra dollars to fund your art and think you've got what it takes, you can apply on the VSCO website. Just make sure you have VSCO Cam installed on your phone and some impressive images on display in your VSCO grid.
