Richard Rodgers Award

Deadline: November 1, 2022

The Richard Rodgers Awards were created and endowed by Richard Rodgers in 1978 for the development of the musical theater. These awards subsidize full productions, studio productions, and staged readings by nonprofit theaters in New York City of works by composers and writers who are not already established in this field. The winners are selected by a jury of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. The Richard Rodgers Awards are the only awards for which the Academy accepts applications.

  1. REQUIREMENTS AND ELIGIBILITY
  • The term "musical theater" is understood to include musicals, plays with songs, thematic revues, or any comparable work. The submission of innovative and experimental work is encouraged. The work submitted must be of significant length to fill an evening; it may consist of a group of smaller, related pieces.
  • The jury will consider only completed works. Care should be taken to submit the work in its best possible form as it may not be submitted again, in another year, even if substantially revised.
  • Only one submission by a collaborative group or a sole creator will be accepted per year. 
  • All applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
  • Works by members of the Academy and previous winners of the full production awards are not eligible for consideration. Former winners of Richard Rodgers awards for staged readings or studio productions may submit new works.
  • An applicant whose works in the musical theater have received professional or amateur productions in New York City or out of town is eligible unless, in the judgment of the jury, the applicant has already achieved significant recognition in the field of musical theater through the work submitted or through any previous work. Under special circumstances and at the discretion of the jury, applicants who have achieved recognition in fields outside the musical theater may be eligible. Works which have been produced by professional theater companies before a paying audience are eligible only if such productions received no more than 21 performances by a for- profit company or 50 performances by a nonprofit company.
  1. SUBMISSION OF MATERIAL
  • The name(s) of the author(s) must not appear on any of the items submitted, with the exception of the application form. Include only the title of the work on the script and plot summary. Please be sure author names are not included in music file metadata.
  • Entry must include:
  1. a) Script with lyrics, in PDF format.
  2. b) Half-page synopsis of the action and a list of characters, in PDF format.
  3. c) A separate track sheet (PDF) of recorded songs with page numbers indicating where they appear in the script and specifying the total number of minutes recorded.
  4. d) At least 45 minutes of music, including a minimum of eight songs. Orchestrations are not necessary; piano and vocals are sufficient. Songs must be numbered in sequence (e.g. 01 Song Title.mp3) and each song’s lyrics clearly typed into the script where it appears. Tracks must be uploaded in the order they appear in the script.
  5. e) Application form signed by all collaborators (see below). Applicants submitting work that has already been produced must give full information concerning these productions, including programs. A work is not eligible if one of the collaborators is deceased.
  6. f) If applicable, a statement of intent declaring how the applicants would use the award if their musical is a winner. If the piece is already attached to producers or a theater, even if tentative, these associations must be declared here.
  • If the submitted work (or a portion thereof) is an adaptation of material which is not in the public domain, candidates must submit licenses, permissions, or authorizations necessary to permit the work to be produced in conformity with applicable copyright laws. The music must be original.
  • Applicants will be notified of the jury's decision by March 2023.

Engaging Artists Fellowship

Deadline: November 1, 2022

More Art’s year-long (January to January) Engaging Artists Fellowship is designed to help emerging NYC artists and community organizers develop and sustain a socially engaged and public art practice. The Fellowship program curriculum includes mentorship, peer networking, access to programming opportunities in New York City, and workshops and artist talks tailored to the interests/needs of the cohort. The infrastructure and laboratory provided by More Art allow selected emerging and underrepresented artists to gain a deeper understanding of the history and vitality of public and socially engaged art and encourage artists to expand and develop social practice.

What to expect:

The program is a hybrid model, including some in-person events and some virtual.

Each Fellow will receive monthly 1-to-1 individualized mentorship sessions with More Art staff. Additionally, the Fellowship Leader will facilitate monthly writing workshops and open studios, tailored to the practices and needs of the cohort. The program will culminate in final presentations by each Fellow, public or otherwise, of or about work developed over the course of the program. At the end of the year, Fellows can expect to receive a small stipend of at least $250 each (each member of a collective will receive a stipend) to be used for expenses related to their practice. Fellows can also expect to spend 15 hours per month on average on More Art-related work.

Some topics covered in previous workshops include:

More Art welcomes applications from NYC artists of all disciplines, including but not limited to: visual artists, performers, choreographers, musicians, designers, and new media artists.

Qualifications:

  • Interest in More Art’s work and eagerness to learn (no prior experience in public art or socially engaged art necessary!)
  • Willingness to present, support, and attend work produced in community and public settings, as opposed to galleries and museums 
  • Strong commitment to More Art’s values, including but not limited to social justice and public engagement, inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, and collaboration

Requirements:

  • Over 18 years of age 
  • Not enrolled in a degree program during the time of the Fellowship 
  • NYC-based during the time of Fellowship
  • We ask that Fellows not commit to more than 2 other residencies and/or fellowships during their Fellowship year with More Art to avoid scheduling conflicts and spreading oneself too thin 
  • fellowship output + expectations.

Over the course of the Fellowship year, Fellows are expected to:

  • Develop a Theory (or theories!) of Change, with help from the Fellowship Leader
  • Develop a set of individualized goals for the Fellowship year
  • Develop a final presentation (public, or otherwise), with assistance from More Art staff, of or about the work you’ve developed during the More Art Fellowship

Artist Studio Program 2023-24

Deadline: November 23, 2022

Overview and Studios 

The Artist Studio Program was launched in 2000 in response to the crisis of available affordable space for artists living and working in New York City. The program provides six eligible artists working in all visual arts media a free private studio space accessible 24/7 and a fellowship (dependent on funding). The 2032-2024 program begins September 1, 2023 and ends August 15, 2024. The studios are located on the lower level of our building at 92 Plymouth Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn and range in size from 250 to 300 square feet. The program does not provide living space. 

Production Facilities

Artists have access to shared facilities that include: a digital production lab, including a set of 27″ iMac workstations professionally configured for video and graphics editing, calibrated monitors, HD projector, stereo monitor speakers, flatbed film scanners, a wide-format photo printer, a color laser printer, and wireless internet access; a fabrication shop including table saw, bandsaw, drill press, belt-sander and welding equipment. Our staff is on-hand to provide technical support and to respond to the studio needs of our resident artists.

Open Studios and Studio Visitors

Smack Mellon hosts two Open Studio events annually, as well as sponsored visits from curators, critics, and gallerists, which provide significant exposure and invaluable career-building opportunities. In addition to monthly studio hours, artists are expected to help at Smack Mellon’s benefit the first weekend in May and make themselves available for studio visits with school groups and other tour groups outside of Open Studio event hours. 

Special Notes

Artists who are accepted into the program must be prepared to actively use their studio a minimum of 50 hours a month or they will lose it. Not all studios have windows. Artists will not be permitted to choose their studio. Please also note that due to the possibility of flooding in our basement studios, we strongly recommend that artists keep anything valuable off the floor at all times; therefore artists accustomed to working on the floor should think carefully about whether our studios will meet their needs. 

Application and Selection Process

To apply to the 2023-2024 season, visit our Submittable page. Please review the eligibility and application guidelines carefully before beginning your application. Each year, Smack Mellon convenes a panel of arts professionals to select the artists from over 600 applicants. A group of finalists who are not selected for the Studio Program are featured on our Hot Picks page for one year.

Please note that Smack Mellon’s Studio Program primarily supports emerging and early career artists. We define an emerging artist as one who is at the beginning of their public artistic career and would greatly benefit from the opportunities we provide, such as regular studio visits with New York City curators, public open studio events, and free studio space. Artists may have some experience participating in group shows, solo shows at lesser-known art spaces, some press recognition, and/or are recent graduates of BFA or MFA programs. We do not consider artists emerging if they have had solo exhibitions at widely recognized galleries or institutions; already received consistent production opportunities, awards, and press; and/or if they have 10 years or more of consistent public experience as an artist. Age is not a determining factor. We understand the ambiguity of some of these terms, but hope they offer insight into our selection considerations.

Cultural Director

Magnum Photos New York 

New York, NY

Magnum Photos is recruiting a Cultural & Creative Director to represent Magnum in the US and Latin America. Traditionally, this role has involved organizing commissions, exhibitions, and publications of work by Magnum photographers – from the new work of emerging photographers to classic images from Magnum’s historic archives and estates. The position requires a passion for historic documentary work, as well as for the work of our newer and future members, many of whom are interested in pushing the boundaries of the genres of documentary and photography in general.

We are open to new visions of how Magnum photographers’ work might be shared, and seen, by new audiences. Organizing shows and acquisitions with museums remains essential, but we are also attracted to non-traditional venues such as pop-up shows, newsprint publications, community workshops, wheat- pasted posters, billboards, projections, and grassroots collaborations with local communities and foundations.

While nurturing relationships beyond Magnum, within the agency you will work closely with photographers to help them develop cultural opportunities both individual and collective, as well as with cultural colleagues in London and Paris, and with key staff members.

Additionally, the role of Cultural Director requires business acumen. The position involves fundraising as well as identifying the necessary resources to execute each cultural project. 

Compensation: $60000.00 to $70000.00 (Annual)

Deadline: October 17, 2022
