Freedom to Create Prize
Deadline: Friday, July 15, 2011

Entries are invited for the 2011 Freedom to Create Prize. This prize
celebrates the power of art to promote social justice, build
foundations for open societies, and inspire the human spirit. The
prize encompasses all forms of art in any creative field and is open
to any individual or group of any gender, religion, or nationality.

The Main prize is open to artists or groups whose participants are
over the age of 16. The first place winner will receive US$50 000
which will be shared with an organisation nominated by the winning
entrant to further the cause the artwork has highlighted. The first
runner-up will receive US$15 000. The second runner-up will receive US
$10 000.

The Imprisoned Artist prize is presented to artists who are imprisoned
because of their courage and creativity in pursuing their art and
whose work plays a role in highlighting injustice. There will be less
emphasis placed on the artists' work (quality) and more on the
personal courage demonstrated by them, the message conveyed through
their work, and the impact of their work. The prize of US$25 000 is
awarded to one winner, to be directed towards securing the artist's
release, advocating on their behalf and the behalf of their cause, and
offering support to their family.
