 Additional information 
The Jerome Foundation operates a grant program for individual media artists who reside within the five boroughs of New York City. Street addresses are preferred; however, Post Office boxes are acceptable, but only when proof of residency is also provided (such as a valid driver`s license, or photocopies of utility bills mailed to the applicant). This program serves primarily film and video artists; however, it welcomes other forms such as film/video installation, on-line projects and interactive media. This program does not support commercial, industrial, or strictly educational work. Full-time students are not eligible to apply. This program awards production grants to emergingartists who make creative use of their respective media. The Foundation supports artists whose work shows promise of excellence. These artists will most often be in the early stages of their careers and will not have had the support needed to achieve major recognition for their work. However, it is important to note that this program is not designed for students or people with little to no background as principal creators in media arts. Factors used to assess whether or not an applicant is emerging include production record/history, exhibition record, awards, grants, peer recognition, career stage, and critical response to the work. The term emerging refers to career level and recognition, not to ongoing stylistic evolution. Only applicants who have total creative control of their projects qualify for support. This person is usually identified as the Director. The Foundation understands that this person may also wear "other" hats, such as Producer, Writer, Editor, etc. Producers, editors, crew people and writers (who are not in creative control of the project) do not qualify for this program.
