Add to Favorites Report Listing

ArtWorks for Freedom and VisArts Call for Entries: Picturing Freedom

Art Call for Picturing Freedom. This is a nationwide poster contest that will present the winning posters on Artwork for Freedom's website as well as in a pop up exhibition in a Washington, D.C. gallery during the month of October, 2017.

The Subject: Human Trafficking. In 2017 it is estimated that over 21 million people worldwide are victims of forced labor of all kinds.  This issue touches the clothes we wear, the food we eat, the goods we buy and even some of the people we meet, who are exploited and forced into the commercial sex industry. Forced labor touches all of us in ways we try not to imagine.

We are inviting professional and student artists, illustrators and graphic designers to create visually provocative and innovative interpretations of human trafficking and the myriad issues related to its proliferation.  We challenge you to:

  • Go beyond stereotypes and clichés 
  • See the victims with empathy
  • Avoid sensationalizing, stigmatizing, and inauthentic imagery
  • Incorporate the National Human Trafficking phone number: 1-888-373-7888

Unleash your creative imagination and address one of the most important human rights issues of our day!
