The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that seeks to encourage African American artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. The Johnson Foundation awards grants to individuals who work in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and/or new genre.
The William H. Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early-career African American artist. For our purposes, "early-career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year that a prize is awarded. For example, a person who finished their studies in 2005 is eligible to apply in 2017, but not in 2018. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as a professional artist for more than twelve years.
The 2017 William H. Johnson Prize is $25,000 and the winner will be announced in December 2017.
