The Northwest Film Center, the Oregon Arts Commission, and the Oregon Media Production Association wish to remind Oregon-based film and video artists that the 2015 Oregon Media Arts Fellowship reaches its submission deadline on February 1, 2016.

Oregon Media Arts Fellowships provide financial and other support for production expenses to enable Oregon film or video artists to create or complete new work or works-in-progress. They recognize and assist media artists whose work shows exceptional promise and who have demonstrated a commitment to film or video art. The program is funded by the Oregon Arts Commission and the Oregon Media Production Association and administered by the Northwest Film Center.

The program is open to emerging and established individual film and video artists. Applicants must be current Oregon residents and have been an Oregon resident for one full year prior to the application deadline. Only non-commercial, non-instructional, non-promotional projects for which the individual applicant has overall control and primary creative responsibility will be considered. For a full description of applicant guidelines, and to apply for the fellowship, please see: nwfilm.org/services/grants/mediaartsfellowship/

The Media Arts Fellowship supports Oregon filmmakers who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the media arts. Jurors review submissions from applicants throughout the state, weighing artistic merit, the potential of the proposed activity to advance the artist’s work, and the feasibility of the projects proposed. Information is available from the Northwest Film Center, www.nwfilm.org; or by contacting Ben Popp, ben@nwfilm.org, the Oregon Arts Commission, www.oregonartscommission.org, or the Oregon Media Production Association, www.ompa.org
