ArtVenture is launching the inaugural ArtVenture Freedom to Create Prize, which seeks to celebrate artists who have used the arts as a medium to promote and protect human rights.  The prize carries a total value of US$ 100,000 and is comprised of three different categories. The prize is designed so that a portion of the prize monies from each category will be given to advocacy groups to further causes highlighted by the winning artists/entries.

It would be much appreciated if you could forward the details of the prize to interested and relevant parties.  If there are any outstanding artists or groups you would like to nominate, please visit the official site at for registration and entry details.
