Silver Eye staff and their relatives, board members, current interns, and past Fellowship winners are not eligible to apply.

Selection Criteria
Award recipients will be selected by the juror on the basis of exceptional, distinctive talent as evidenced by the strength of their submitted portfolios. The juror is especially interested in seeing portfolios with a strong narrative thrust and highly individual, original points of view.

  • One-page Artist’s Statement in PDF format
  • Biography or CV in PDF format
  • Work sample:
    • Submit up to ten (10) images from a cohesive, exhibition-ready body of work created within the past three years.
      Or, if from an ongoing project, the portfolio must include images created within the past three years.
    • Submitted work may not have been previously exhibited at Silver Eye or in the Greater Pittsburgh region.
    • For the best image quality and fast upload, image files must be no larger than 1,500 pixels wide, saved as a .JPG size 8.
