GRANTS & AWARDS
The IFPDA Foundation provides various grants and awards throughout the year, benefiting many deserving institutions and organizations. Currently, the foundation offers Foundation Grants, the Book Award, Curatorial Internship grants, the Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize, and the Jordan Schnitzer Award for Excellence in Printmaking.
The IFPDA Book Award was founded in 2004 to highlight and promote published books, articles, or catalogues on fine prints. This annual award honors excellence in research, scholarship, and the discussion of new ideas in the field of fine prints. The award provides one outstanding recipient and publication with a prize of $2,000, and represents another milestone for the organization. As a result, the winner will receive acclaim from one of the most recognizable bodies in the print world.
The application for the 2020 IFPDA Foundation Book Award will open in the new year.
The jury limits its consideration to books published during the prior year. Each submission will be vetted by members of the jury, who have been selected according to their expertise in that particular field or specialty. They will consider the use of original ideas, fresh research and individual interpretations. The jury will review the submissions and the award will be announced at the Collectors and Curators Breakfast during the IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair in October.
