To mark the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the 10 December World Human Rights Day, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation Alumni Network (FAN) Malaysia will hold a photography contest and exhibition under the title of “Works of Freedom”.
As the title suggests, the contesting photos will feature activities or reveal commitment to the promotion or achievement of freedom that all human beings deserve regardless of nationality, race or faith.
For years FAN Malaysia has voluntarily worked to raise the awareness and importance of freedom, and this photography contest is its latest activity to promote the value of human liberty. All entries will be featured at the “Works of Freedom” exhibition on 1-7 December 2008 at the Galeri Pelita Hati, No. 22 Jalan Abdullah, off Jalan Bangsar, 59000 Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysian nationals are welcomed to join the contest by sending their photos to the SEDAR Institute between now and 15 November 2008. Photos received by the organiser will be displayed and sold at the exhibition. Proceeds will be used entirely for the benefit of promoting freedom in the Malaysian society.
At the photo exhibition, visitors will also enjoy the reading of poems on the subject of “freedom,” musical performance by Meor and Black, special presentation by renowned painter and photographer Wong Hoy Cheong.
Deputy Information Minister YB Tan Lian Hoe will preside over the closing ceremony of the “Works of Freedom” on 7 December when the winners for the contest will be announced. The minister will present prizes to the 13 winners who will each receive a certificate of achievement, trophy and RM500 cash.
All the 13 winning entries will be featured in the FAN Malaysia 2009 Calendar. Copies of the calendar will be distributed to FAN Malaysia members and members of its partner organisations across the country.
