The French Academy in Rome announces the 2018 competition for selecting resident fellows at Villa Medici starting next September for a maximal period of 12 months. The competition is open to French-speaking artists and researchers of all nationalities over 18 years of age.

Applications (in French) can be sent from January 5th to February 5th through a dedicated website: https://villamedicis.achatpublic.com

Sixteen is the maximum number of fellowships granted to candidates for a sojourn at the French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici in 2018-2019. Unlike previous years, candidates of all creative disciplines, history of art and art crafts are admitted to the competition provided they deposit a dossier in which the discipline/s they intend to practice are defined. There is no longer a restricted list of disciplines and the phases of pre-selection, audition and selection will be carried out by a single multidisciplinary jury. Candidates can apply from all creative artistic fields as well as history and theory of the arts and the restoration and preservation of artworks or monuments. To take part in the competition, applicants must submit a detailed project indicating their motivations, research themes and type of activities they want to realize during their sojourn.
