Please note: if you do not strictly follow our guidelines, your application will be disqualified.
No late applications will be accepted. No exceptions.
Read extremely carefully our guidelines before submitting your application. If something is not clear, write to us before uploading your submission.
Once your submission is uploaded we cannot make any changes to it.
The format of your application MUST conform to the following Application Guidelines.
Application is open to all professional visual artists from all over the world who have been professionally active for at least the past 3 years. Resume must reflect three years of professional experience.
We do not accept applications from currently enrolled students: you must be out of school at the time of the application in order to be eligible.
Please note: having studied art is NOT a requirement: we accept applications from self-taught professional artists.
IMPORTANT: We have instated an alternate year submission policy.
If you applied for the 2011 residency session (application mailed in December 2010) and were not wait listed, (which was communicated to you in writing by email), you must wait a full year cycle before applying again. It means that you cannot apply for the 2012 session, but will be eligible again for the 2013 session.
Art Omi is once in a lifetime opportunity. We do not accept applications from alumni seeking to return.
All applications must be complete. Incomplete applications will be automatically disqualified. It is your responsibility to submit a complete and correct application. We will not notify you about an incorrect or incomplete application.
Artists submitting incomplete, incorrect applications are considered “applications not accepted” which means you will not be able to apply again the following year, due to our alternate year policy.
