The second year of the Knight Arts Challenge Philadelphia launched last week, kicking off the second round of this $9 million arts funding initiative. Submissions are accepted until Oct. 31.

APPLY HERE.

Organizers will be hosting a town hall next Monday, Oct. 17, which you can RSVP for here.

Last year, the Knight Foundation awarded $2.7 million to 36 winners, following a round of 63 finalists. Tech-related winning ideas included an art collection app from the Barnes Foundation, a smartphone-enabled public art installation from the Fairmount Park Art Association and real-time mobile content for Philadelphia Orchestra audiences.

The challenge lists three rules:

  1. The idea must be about the arts.
  2. The project must take place in or benefit Philadelphia.
  3. The grant recipients must find funds to match Knight’s commitment (within a year).

This summer, the Knight Foundation also hosted a call to fund art journalism initiatives in Philadelphia.

Watch below this video introduction for the round of submissions.
