New Photo Mission: Capturing Freedom

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

How can you show the idea of freedom in an image? Get your thinking caps on for our new mission with Getty Images

To think, behave, dress, act and speak without restraint – this is what it means to be free. It’s a huge concept and a great one to explore through photography. Through images, you really can play with the idea of being free, independent and individual. Photos showing these themes are really powerful, which is why we’ve teamed up with Getty Images to present the challenge of Capturing Freedom.

This is part 27 of our cooperation with Getty Images.

Your Mission: Come on, show us your free spirits in pictures! From the freedom of space, the freedom of expression or the freedom of actions, all sorts of photos can communicate a sense of liberation. Check out our example images for some ideas, but don’t be afraid to get creative!

Your Reward: The photo which makes us want to shout “FREEDOM!” from the mountain tops (or the top of the stairs), will win a super cute Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 instant camera! The top fifteen images will also be featured in an EyeEm Image Collection.

Deadline: August 3, 2015

If you want to add a photo that you’ve already uploaded, just go to your profile, view the photo and select “Edit Photo”. From there you can add the tag “Capturing Freedom”.
