Check out our contest video featuring former Studio Assistant Sequoia (Navajo) and share with the artists in your life. If you know an indigenous artist that's got what it takes to design a beautiful blanket, we want to help them make that happen!

How to Apply

Just send electronic copies of your work and a personal statement to info@eighthgeneration.com.

  • All submissions must be the sole original work of the submitting artist.
  • Images should be .jpg file type, no more than 2MB in size.
  • Include tribal affiliation, website, and social media links.
  • Personal statement should highlight how your story aligns with Eighth Generation's values and goals - 300 words or less
  • Please note: when you submit your artwork, you are granting permission for us to share it - along with appropriate credit and your preferred website link - through our social media channels.
  • Deadline: March 15th (MIDNIGHT). Finalists will be contacted for phone interviews.


$2,000 minimum - varies depending on qualifications and other factors.

Other Considerations

  • Just to be clear - we are NOT asking you to create a blanket design to submit! We don't ask artists to do work for free.
  • Wondering what pieces to send? Choose artwork that you feel best represents your skills - pick the art that you're most proud of.
  • Questions? Please email info@eighthgeneration.com.

We look forward to seeing your submissions!
