Opportunity - Freedom House Photography & Art Contest

Freedom House is accepting submissions for its second annual photo and art contest, Images of Repression and Freedom. 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, human rights, and repression.

Semifinalists chosen by Freedom House will be displayed and auctioned as a fundraiser in spring 2013 in Washington, DC. The top three winners will be featured on the Freedom House website, Facebook and Twitter pages, in our newsletter, and will receive a cash prize:

$300 for First Place
$200 for Second Place
$100 for Third Place

"Freedom with Three Stars" by Aram Tahham is one of the top three photos from the 2012 Contest:

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.

Entries must be submitted by 8 March 2013. For more information, visit the Freedom House website.
