Photos, Art Needed for Unique Book Project: "Rebel Voices"

International call for photos and art for use in an upcoming book called "Rebel Voices," to be published in 2005 in the u.s.
"Rebel Voices:" Photos, Art Needed for Unique Book Project


"Rebel Voices" is an anthology of politically conscious quotations to inspire and incite using commentaries from some of the most courageous minds of our time. The book will be published by Common Courage Press in 2005. We are seeking YOUR photographs and art work to help make this a visually powerful book.

The book contains over 150 topics and thousands of quotations. A short sampling of topics include War, Imperialism, Race/Racism, the Environment, Religion, Women's Liberation, Rebellion, the Criminal Justice System, Politics, Government, Media, Queer Liberation, Globalization, Terrorism, Indigenous People, Patriarchy, Economics, Materialism, Artistic and Cultural Resistance, Technology, Health, Free speech, Revolution, Peace.--and almost everything in between and outside. Please see chapter topics further down the page for more for a complete list.

We are seeking all moving, powerful images that reflect the struggle for a better world or the conditions that make change necessary. Please let us know if you would like quotation samples for any topic to get a sense of what the book will be like.

"Rebel Voices" is a fundraiser. 100% of the royalties from this project will be donated to an activist foundation that will use the money to support grassroots organizing, with a focus on activism led by people of color and women. We regret that we will probably NOT be able to provide any compensation to artists for their work. This is merely an opportunity to have your work published in a book which will reach thousands of people.
