Today VSCO has announced the five recipients of its first-ever VSCO Voices grants after the program was opened for candidates back in February of this year.
Earlier this year, VSCO launched the VSCO Voices grant program to support creators with mentorship and funding, and to empower marginalized communities in the United States, through art. This year’s theme was ‘HOME.’
The program drew many applicants, and today, the five selected recipients were announced: Ash Adams, Deun Ivory, Eric Javier Mejia, Maegan Houang, and Natalie Keyssar.
A VSCO spokesperson said: “We enjoyed learning about communities in all pockets of the country through your proposals, and it was incredibly difficult to choose just five projects. Thank you for taking the time to apply and for sharing your stories with us.”
