“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” – Nelson Mandela, 1995
On April 27th, South Africa will be celebrating Freedom Day, regaling the courageous men and women who fought selflessly for the nation and its people.
We think “Freedom Day” is aptly named in commemoration of a wonderful cause, and that this idea appeals universally… free and unrestricted by borders.
What is your perception of Freedom? Most of us at 123RF love the idea of Freedom in creative expressions i.e. Freedom to explore, to express, to abandon the shackles of doubts or restrictions, to inspire, etc. But we are curious to discover what your take and perspective is on this subject. What better way to do this, than by joining our 123RF On-The-Go contest this month. Take a shot of how you can express the concept of Freedom with a picture.
Come channel your creativity and give us your interpretation of FREEDOM through our 123RF On-The-Go contest themed “Creative Freedom”.
Think out of the box? We say, think like there is no box at all! We’d love your concept as long as it’s original and inspired. We want you to let yourself go with your mobile camera and liberate your imagination!
Joining us for the first time? Get a head-start and familiarize yourself with the 123RF OTG app. Just install the app, get your member account approved (it’s FREE!), and give us your best Freedom shot!
Ps: These mobile photography tips might come in handy! As well as this specially compiled Likebox with some ideas on what freedom looks like in photos.
