Cash Prize
The Hopper Prize was established in order to increase the recognition of artwork created by artists and photographers. Our aim is to advance artists' careers by providing them with unrestricted financial support that is coupled with a platform for increased visibility. We accept submissions twice a year via an open call.

The Hopper Prize grant winners will be selected by Jody Graf (Assistant Curator at MoMA PS1) and Pamela Meadows (Curator at BMoCA).
