AJF supports artists through a generous award and grant program.

In support of their willingness to make outside the box, Art Jewelry Forum provides resources to artists who have chosen this alternative art practice. We offer two generous awards and grants, made possible by our membership, to aid jewelry artists in their research and practice: the AJF Artist Award and the Susan Beech Mid-Career Artist Grant. 

These programs provide recognition for artists at different stages in their lives along with substantial financial support to help them achieve their creative goals. The AJF Artist Award comes with an unrestricted cash prize of $7,500. The Susan Beech Mid-Career Artist Grant provides $20,000 toward the completion of a significant jewlery-related project.

The awards are offered on alternate years--the AJF Artist Award on even-numbered years, and the Susan Beech Mid-Career Artist Grant on odd-numbered years.

The application period for the 2019 Susan Beech Mid-Career Artist Grant will open on November 1, 2018. The deadline is January 14, 2019. You can find all relevant information in the 2019 Susan Beech Mid-Career Artist Grant Guidelines link below.
