Attention Photographers: Time to "Capture Your Freedom"

Four Freedoms Park Conservancy announces, "Photographers of all skill levels are invited to enter Four Freedoms Park’s Capture Your Freedom Photo Contest for a chance to have their photograph displayed at an onsite, outdoor photography exhibition at Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park." The outdoor exhibit, planned for June, is the first of its kind for the site.

"Held in partnership with United Photo Industries, this contest encourages participants to use photography to explore the meaning of the four freedoms—freedom of speech & expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear—and the role these rights play in their lives today."

United Photo Industries is a New York based non-profit organization that works to promote a wider understanding and increased access to the art of photography.
