The VSCO Artist Initiative, A $100,000 Scholarship Fund For Creatives

The VSCO Artist Initiative

Looks like the folks at Visual Supply Co. (VSCO as you probably know them) are giving back to the artistic community, establishing a scholarship fund for creatives.

Recipients will document their ideation and creation process on VSCO Grid?, with the end result sold via the VSCO Store and physical gallery exhibitions. Profits are divided between the artist and a reinvestment in the Initiative, enabling future projects for other artists. In this manner, the creative community can build a growing and sustainable movement built upon principles of integrity and artistry.

The first recipients are Kevin Russ, Lauren Marek, Street Etiquette, Chris Schoonover and Jon Schoonover, Leon Yan, and Niv Patel. It’ll be interesting to see if any non-photographers will be featured as winners. VSCO being a photo editing app would seem to lean toward that medium, hopefully it’s not exclusively that way.
