Awards of up to $10,000 to Texas visual artists in eligible counties to recognize outstanding work in contemporary art. In addition to funding, successful awardees will receive networking opportunities, publicity on the funding source's website, and the opportunity to form connections and share resources with other artists. Eligible applicants are those residing in Harris County.

Each year, an open-call application is made available in each of the six active partner cities. Supporting artists equitably is a critical part of the Artadia Award process: the Foundation considers the unique populations of each community and are proud to reflect the country’s diversity with an Awardee pool that is over 50 percent female and over 40 percent persons of color.

In addition to financial support, Awardees can participate in the Artadia Network to receive structured opportunities for valuable new connections and resource sharing as well as receive a dedicated webpage on Artadia’s online Artist Registry. Connections fostered by Artadia have facilitated major steps in Awardees’ careers, such as inclusion in prominent exhibitions (e.g. five Awardees were featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and six in 2019).
