The Face(book) of Freedom?. Photoaward. Deadline: Mar. 31, 2016

Now, this is an interesting Call for entries: the Teutloff Museum Photo Award 2016, under the theme “The Face of Freedom”, Deadline March 31, 2016, will be co-juried by Facebook likers and a high-class judging panel. So if you are able to combine what Jodi Dean calls secondary visuality with photographic quality, and a general interest in the subject, this one is for you. Just remember: “freedom” and “liberty” are not the same: While Freedom usually means to be free from something, Liberty means to be free to do something, although both refer to the quality or state of being free.

With this in mind, have a good weekend!
