The nonprofit Creators for Creators is taking applications for their 2020 grant through May 11. Complete details on submitting can be found on their website.
As their website says, Creators for Creators “is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization intended to encourage, support, and promote original works through grants and education.” The grant was founded by several creators, who also serve as mentors for recipients: Charlie Adlard, Jordie Bellaire, David Brothers, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Nick Dragotta, Leila del Duca, Matt Fraction, Kieron Gillen, Jonathan Hickman, Joe Keatinge, Robert Kirkman, Jamie McKelvie, Rick Remender, Declan Shalvey, Fiona Staples, Eric Stephenson, C. Spike Trotman and Brian K. Vaughan.
This will be the fourth year the grant has been offered. M. Dean’s project I Am Young received the grant in 2017, while Desvitio’s project David’s Gate was honored in 2018. Last year’s winner was Shobo and Shofela Coker’s Outcasts of Jupiter:
“A lot of the creatives that make up the jury are creators and artists I’ve followed for ages, so it feels special,” Shofela Coker said after winning last year. “Can’t express how much of a boost of confidence and validation the grant is. I’m excited about the platform this gives us to get the book over the line.”
