About the platform

About the platform

Open calls for artists, and more.

artistopps.com is run by an artist for other artists, not for those who want to make money off of us.

Opportunities posted here are always free to apply. I never post opportunities that ask for submission or exhibition fees. Instead, I'm focused on helping artists get paid work, in the form of grants, jobs, prizes, and funded residencies.

The platform started out on social media in 2013 as Opportunities for Egypt Artists. Most artists in Egypt will be eligible for all the opportunities posted here, but the platform is international in scope. Artists around the world will find opportunities suitable to their practice.
