The Maryland State Arts Council’s annual Individual Artist Award (IAA) recognizes the importance of artists and their works of excellence to the cultural vibrancy of Maryland. Each year, awards of $1,000, $3,000 or $6,000 go to Artists from across Maryland who are selected by a blind, out-of-state jury on the basis of artistic merit alone.
In partnership with the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, The IAA program reviews a total of 18 artistic disciplines, which are separated into three competition groups that are awarded tri-annually.
