Games now eligible for National Endowment for the Arts grants

Video games are among the new types of interactive media eligible for 2012 National Endowment for the Arts grants.

The grants, which typically range from $10,000 to $200,000 can be given for works that are either arts in themselves, or about the arts. A game that helps to teach you about the opera, for example, would be eligible even if it isn't itself an artistic work. Read more »
