YoungArts identifies and nurtures emerging artists ages 15-18 (or in grades 10-12) in the visual, literary, design and performing arts. Winners in cinematic arts, dance, design, jazz, music, photography, theater, visual arts, voice, and writing are provided once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, significant access to scholarships and national recognition. YoungArts ensures the nation’s most outstanding young artists are encouraged – at critical junctures in their lives – to pursue careers in the arts.
Awardees are offered exclusive eligibility for recognition as a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, master classes with world-renowned artists, and access to scholarships, career opportunities and professional contacts.
Application to YoungArts is made through the completion of an on-line application and submission of an audition or portfolio. No references or academic transcripts are required. There is a $35 (non-refundable) application fee per category. Fee waivers are available. Applicants may submit in more than one discipline or category within a discipline. Please refer to the discipline and category guidelines for details.
Each of our 10 disciplines (cinematic arts, dance, design, jazz, music, photography, theater, visual arts, voice, and writing) have specific requirements for the audition portfolio.
