The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Awards in Painting,
Sculpture, Printmaking, Photography, Video, and Craft Media
Every two years, designated nominators from throughout the United States recommend candidates to be considered for a grant from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation. The nominees are reviewed by an invited jury composed of artists, critics, museum professionals, and representation from the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Awardees are selected for their talent and individual artistic strength.
It is the intention of the Foundation to support artists whose work shows promise, but who have not yet received widespread critical acclaim or commercial recognition. The purpose of the monetary grants is to give artists the opportunity to produce new work and continue their development. The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Biennial Competition is currently administered by the American Federation of Arts.
