AOL to Award $25,000 to 25 Creative People

25for25.jpgIf you’re reading this, you may well consider yourself an artist, an innovator, or a journalist, and, on your good days, maybe all of those things at once. Well, then listen up, because AOL would like to give you a grant for $25,000. Part of the company’s Project on Creativity, launched earlier this year with the help of artist Chuck Close and an epic 25th-anniversary bash at the New Museum, AOL’s “25 for 25” Grant Program will award 25 $25,000 grants to “tomorrow’s groundbreakers and visionaries—individuals with a creative spark to ignite.” Spark your chance to win by going here to request an application no later than Wednesday, September 1 (it probably wouldn’t hurt to use your old AOL e-mail address). You’ll then receive more information and a special 25-for-25-branded envelope in which to return the requested work and documents by September 20. An advisory board including Close, Andy Spade, AOL chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong, and experts from an array of creative fields will select the grant recipients.
