Grant Description

The program supports individual professional Ontario-based media artists/directors working with film, video, audio, digital, new media, video and electronic games, and virtual reality as independent artist-controlled art forms in the production and post-production phases of their projects. The program has two categories:

  • Emerging Artist: You have completed at least one independent media work and are not currently enrolled in a formal media arts education program.
  • Mid-Career & Established Artist: You have completed at least two previous media works independently. Mid-Career artists have a history of independent media arts practice of at least 5 years. Established artists have a history of independent media arts practice of at least 15 years.
    Additional Information

    The program’s priorities are to support:

    - projects that are innovative – in content, point of view, form, style, technique or process
    - projects that further the applicant's development as an artist

    In addition to considering the OAC’s priority groups, this program also strives to support gender parity.
