One Law for All Campaign is pleased to announce the winners of 2009’s art competition, Passion for Freedom, which was organised to promote universal and equal rights and expose the discriminatory nature of religious laws.
Winners of the competition are as follows:
ID and Stoning by Julie, first prize
Sharia law in Iran by Gaby, second prize
Sister Image by Emma, third prize
The art pieces are now available to view on One Law For All’s website.
The first prize winner will receive £100 donated by the Central London Humanist Group, the second prize winner will receive a crate of wine donated by Goranka Gudelj, and the third prize winner will receive £50 donated by the Central London Humanist Group.
The prominent judges deciding on the pieces were A C Grayling (Professor of Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London), Polly Toynbee (columnist for the Guardian), and Deeyah (Pakistani-Norwegian singer, composer and human rights activist).
As a result of the interest raised by the successful 2009 competition, One Law for All will be extending its art project. We will be holding a gallery exhibition in the Spring to show pieces from the previous competition as well as new pieces received in the coming months.
