Freedom House is accepting submissions for its third annual photo and art contest: Images of Repression and Freedom. Both professional and amateur photographers and artists may submit photos and other forms of art (cartoons, prints, paintings, graphic art, etc.) that reflect the themes of freedom, political participation, democracy, human rights, and repression. Semifinalists chosen by Freedom House will be displayed and auctioned at a fundraiser on April 15 in Washington, D.C. The top three winners will receive a cash prize and be featured on Freedom House's website, newsletter, and social media outlets. 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.
