A total of $18,000 will be distributed to nine artists working in a variety of fields.

From documentary filmmakers and theater producers to puppet show masters, this year’s awardees were recognized for creating “innovative, risk-taking works unlikely to be funded by more traditional revenue streams” and were selected from a pool of over eighty Atlanta-based artists.

The recipients are filmmaker Ebony Blanding, film producer and filmmaker Phoebe Brown, photographer Jarrett ChristianBen ColemanElizabeth DinkovaAnthony Gaskins, Jason Kofke, mixed-media artist Yanique Norman, and director Cydnei Prather.
