Since 2011 the Greater Columbus Arts Council in coordination with the Columbus Film Council has organized the Media Arts Fellowship for artists in Franklin County who are working in the medium of the moving image. The competition for this award is highly competitive, based on the submission of past work, and is organized as a blind process utilizing jurors working in film production, curation, and academics outside of Franklin County.

We are proud to announce that the top three 2014 Media Arts Fellowship Awards were won by Mike Polk (OSU Film Studies Program Assistant), Matt Swift (OSU Film Studies Program Coordinator), and Nicolette Swift (OSU Film Studies and History of Art alumna). The Fellowships carry a cash award to support the recipients in future production of work and the chance to apply for the GCAC Dresden Artists Residency Program.
