Oregon Media Arts Fellowship

Still from Borrufa by Roland Dahwen, 2018 Oregon Media Arts Fellow

Artist Fellowships honor Oregon’s professional artists and their achievements while supporting efforts to advance their careers. Oregon Media Arts Fellowships provide financial and other support for production expenses to enable Oregon film or video artists to create or complete new work or works-in-progress. Review panels look for Oregon artists of outstanding talent, demonstrated ability and commitment to the creation of new work.
