Images of Repression and Freedom 2014 Photo Contest
Freedom House will begin accepting submissions for its third annual competition, Images of Repression and Freedom 2014 Photo Contest. We invite professional and amateur photographers and artists to submit photos and other forms of art (i.e. cartoons, prints, paintings, graphic art) that reflect the themes of freedom, political participation, democracy, human rights, and repression.
Semifinalists chosen by Freedom House will be displayed and auctioned as a fundraiser on April 10, 2014 in Washington, DC. The top three winners will be featured on the Freedom House website, Facebook and Twitter, in our newsletter, and will receive a cash prize.
Works from any country or region of the world will be considered, but preference will be given to works from countries where freedom is under threat.
Freedom House is an independent watchdog organization dedicated to the expansion of freedom around the world.
Today, as more than two billion people live under oppressive rule, Freedom House speaks out against the main threats to democracy and empowers citizens to exercise their fundamental rights. We analyze the challenges to freedom; advocate for greater political and civil liberties; and support frontline activists to defend human rights and promote democratic change. Founded in 1941, Freedom House was the first American organization to champion the advancement of freedom globally.
Freedom House is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization. Freedom House is a proud CFC participant; our Charity Number is 11533
