Dear Students,

The FSU Department of Art announces the 2020 Art Student Awards. These awards recognize the strength of our students and that means YOU!

The Department of Art gives a number of awards to Studio Art students whose work demonstrates exceptional achievement. This spring, the department will offer 33 awards ranging from $250 to $1000.

To apply, go to <https://fsu.academicworks.com/> https://fsu.academicworks.com/

After login, fill out the General Application first, and then select College of Fine Arts/Dept of Art Application and complete the art portion as outlined below. Both parts of the application must be completed to be considered for an award.

Application deadline January 27 at 11:59pm

Preparing your Art Award application — make it great! Here’s how:

1. Develop a concise yet compelling artist’s statement between 150 and 300 words in length. Start with a brief biographical statement, followed by a description of the ideas that drive your work.

SPECIAL NOTE for Undergraduates: If you wish to be considered for an Ann Kirn Scholarship (a $1000 award limited to undergraduate students), you must include a thoughtful description of the role that design plays in your studio practice.

2. Select the five (5) to eight (8) images that best represent your studio work. Be sure that your images are photographed well and cropped as needed. File sizes should be less than 2MB. A video will be considered as one image. Submit your video to Vimeo or YouTube and provide a link within your application. A balance between breadth and depth is ideal. If no two images are related in any way, your submission can appear unfocused. If all of the images are extremely similar, you can come across as short on imagination. Most importantly, be sure all of the images presented are your very best. It is better to submit six great images than to submit six great ones and two weak ones.

Workshop for BA/BFA/MFAs: "How to Document your Artwork”

January 10 @ 1pm

at the CAB lighting studio, LightBox

3. Write a brief description of each image and provide the title, size, medium, and date completed. This is a great opportunity to build on the general comments from your Artist’s Statement through specific information about each image.

SPECIAL NOTE: The application as a whole may evolve over several days and is likely to take many hours to complete. Putting the necessary time and thought into it will greatly improve your chances of success. Furthermore, once you have laid the groundwork with this application, you will be better prepared for future applications for awards on or off campus. A sample application is also included at the webpage noted above.
