Subject: [Puptcrit] Jim Henson Foundation - Letter of Intent Deadline -

The *Jim Henson Foundation* awards grants each year for the creation and
development of innovative works of puppet theater.

Project grants of $5,000 are awarded for the continued development and
production of new works ready to be presented in the coming year. Seed
grants of $2,000 are for the development and workshopping of pieces in
earlier stages of creation.  Last but not least, our newest category of
Children's Show grants of $3,000 fund the development of new and innovative
work specifically for children and families.

If you would like to be considered for a grant, the first step is to submit
a letter of intent postmarked on or before *April 24, 2009*.

The letter of intent must not exceed one page and should include your
complete contact information and a clear description of the planned project.
Please include information on any upcoming performances as well. The letter
must be accompanied by a one-page sketch, photograph (no slides), or other
one-page visual relevant to the proposed project. Be sure to indicate in
your letter of intent if you intend to apply for a Project, Seed or
Children's grant. Please do not submit a cover letter or any other
additional materials. Letters of intent are not accepted by fax or email, or
after the postmark deadline.

Approximately half of the applicants submitting letters of intent will be
asked to submit full proposals. Letters of intent will be reviewed at the
June board meeting, and applicants will be notified of the board's decision
by June 12, 2009.
