The Canadian Women Artists’ Award is a $5,000 cash grant open to Canadian women artists ages 25-40 in New York State.
The Canadian Women Artists’ Award (CWAA) is supported by funding granted to NYFA by the Canadian Women’s Club (CWC) of New York as a way to continue its philanthropic work when it disbanded.
The CWAA is an unrestricted cash grant and can be used in any manner the recipient deems necessary to further their artistic goals.
In 2022, CWC and NYFA will be awarding three (3) $5,000 awards, one in each of the following categories:
Visual Arts: Painting, Photography, Craft/Sculpture, Printmaking/Drawing, or Interdisciplinary Work
Media and Design: Video/Film, Experimental Sound, or Design
Literary Arts: Poetry, Nonfiction, Fiction, or Playwriting/Screenwriting
