The nation's leading arts competition for young artists, YoungArts, is now accepting applications through October 14, 2022. Accomplished artists ages 15-18 or in grades 10-12 are encouraged to apply online at youngarts.org/apply.

"Over 40 years, YoungArts has evolved and expanded, creating opportunities to support artists throughout their careers. It all starts with our unwavering commitment to identifying exceptional young artists whose courageous and artistic expressions signify a capacity and a desire to positively contribute to culture," said YoungArts Artistic Director Lauren Snelling. "Past YoungArts award winners like Amanda Gorman and Hunter Schafer, Jean Shin and Camille A. Brown, Terence Blanchard and Viola Davis have all shown us the remarkable impact of their creative voices. We are filled with hope and are tremendously excited to meet the 2023 YoungArts award winners."

Cornelius Tulloch (2016 YoungArts Winner in Design Arts,Visual Arts & U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts) said: "Initially YoungArts allowed me to see that I had limitless potential, but what has truly stuck with me is the ability it has given me to see the potential in others. It showed me the power in creating community within the arts and the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration."
