Sustainable Arts Foundation: 2014 Fall Award Winners

The Sustainable Arts Foundation supports artists and writers with children by offering unrestricted cash awards to parent artists whose work is of the highest caliber. We're delighted to announce the winners of our 2014 Fall Awards. Once again, in this round demand was high: we received over 1,000 applications. To ensure that all applications received broad consideration, we enlisted previous awardees to serve as jurors. As talented artists and writers, they are eminently qualified to evaluate these portfolios; as fellow parents, they are particularly attuned to the particular circumstances of our applicants.

As with previous rounds, we've also selected 10 finalists whose work showed such strength we felt compelled to acknowledge it publicly.
