This year’s VSCO Voices project theme is Home, a universal concept that transcends race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, and religion. Together, grant recipients will explore what home means to a marginalized community living in the United States today.

The 2018 VSCO Voices application is now closed.

To qualify for the grant, you must be a VSCO community member, a US resident, and at least 18 years of age. The application requires your general information and portfolio, as well as your project idea, art medium, and required funding.

The VSCO team will review all applications alongside Access Ventures. When reviewing applications, we’ll be looking for project proposals that speak to this year's theme, and that clearly convey thoughtfulness, passion, as well as continued commitment to the community described. Based on this criteria, we will select five finalists who will each receive $20,000 in funding for their respective projects.
