Freedom House Photo/Art contest

Call for Photos and Art

Today, Freedom House will begin accepting submissions for its third 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, 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:

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

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.

To enter, email your entry form and photo in jpeg format to by Monday, March 10, 2014.

For more information and to see selected photos from last year’s auction, please visit the contest website.

The decision to feature submitted photos is the sole discretion of Freedom House. Chosen artists will be notified through email. Photos must be the sole property of the submitter. All submitters agree that any image they submit to Freedom House may be used by Freedom House for marketing and promotional purposes, including for publication in Freedom House printed materials, advertisements, electronic media, Internet, and on Any image used by Freedom House shall carry a credit line of the artist. Copyright and all other rights remain that of the artist. Submitters acknowledge that any money raised by the auction of their work will be a donation to Freedom House, which is tax deductible for U.S. citizens.
