CALL FOR ENTRIES 6th PASSION FOR FREEDOM FESTIVAL – London


CALL FOR ENTRIES – 6TH EDITION OF PASSION FOR FREEDOM ART COMPETITION

The annual international festival is a rare collection of works of “courageous artists” in the categories of film, photography, painting, sculpture, publications, journalism, book, performance and other forms of artistic expression. So far the competition has featured hundreds of artists from all over the world, including Sarah Maple, Steve Rosenthal, Robb Leech, Firoozeh Bazrafkan, Mehdi-Georges Lahlou among others.

Click here to apply.

“Brave” artists from around the world such as Ai Weiwei (who spent three months in prison and is banned from contacting the media), Jafar Panahi (several times arrested on charges of propaganda against the Islamic Republic), Johan van der Dong (no galleries in Europe have courage to show his work for the fear of attacks), Ferri Farahmandi, Azadeh Behroozi and many others, showed their works at the PFF festival and still have the courage to create despite the threat to their lives and the safety of their family. Some are forced to hide behind a nickname, others withdraw their works or self-censor themselves to avoid “offending religious feelings”.

As every year, the entry is open from April. Works can be submitted by 20th September 2014. The festival will be held in November central London. Location and more details will be announced on later date.

WHAT IS FREEDOM?

HOW EASY IS IT TO LOSE IT?

HOW HARD IS IT TO GET IT BACK?

Please find detailed information, Submission Form, Terms and Conditions on our website.  www.passionforfreedom.co.uk

“Honored to have been the recipient of last year’s ‘Visitors Choice Award’ I would urge everyone to support, in whatever way that they can, the tireless work being done by the ‘Passion for Freedom Festival’. The Festival brings together artists from many corners of the globe whose work treats about human rights issues and defends freedoms of expression,

It provides a much needed platform for information dissemination, reflexive discussion and artistic articulation. It highlights ongoing repressive issues and potentially enables social, governmental, and dogmatic change at this time of increasing global conservatism.’

-Steve Rosenthal (UK), Visitors Choice Award 2011

“Freedom is a fragile balance and they stated this with their beautiful view and exhibition they worked on so carefully and balanced. This festival deserves worldwide recognition and attention. It has more than proven its existence because it shows us how precious peace, freedom and security are”

-Johan van der Dong (Netherland), Shortlisted Artist 2012

The art competition is organised by Passion for Freedom, an independent group of friends standing up for freedom of speech and artistic expression. More in the movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4fu9tXYVsg.
