This challenge closed over 8 years ago.

The Challenge

In celebration of the launch of the Art Action Union Community Site ( and finally having the challenge software… I thought it appropriate to launch a collective exercise…

The Freedom to Create Prize ( is an award and cash prize for outstanding expression under repression… it is a celebration of the ‘freedom to create’ that some so easily abuse and others fight with their lives to achieve, others just struggle to be understood and use art as not only an expression, but a lasting living reminder of the things that we need to protect ourselves and others from…

So… I am formally christening this software in this group with this challenge…

FREEDOM TO CREATE… the freedom we need to express our fears, concerns and love.

Judging / Voting Criteria
