    I am all for Freedom Of Speech. That is one of the major reasons I migrated to USA almost 30 years ago and am a proud American. But I certainly wonder “Would the juror be fair when it comes to entering the “Protest” art?” I feel that if anyone has a view different than a typical Liberal (Typical Liberal who hates Trump) then that person is called a Racist, Sexist, Homophobe and Islamaphobe. Which I am not. So is it only a “one-sided protest” contest or both sides will be given an equal voice to state their opinion? Is it the quality and the message of art that will be evaluated and displayed or personal politics? I guess I will find that out in December.

    In my experience, jurors tend to make judgements based on the merit of the work. Please note that the Call is open to wide interpretation & not limited to U.S. politics. I suspect that work from both ends of the spectrum in both this country, & from protests around the world, both actual & imagined, will be both accepted & rejected. That means you are unlikely to have an answer regardless of the outcome of the jury process. I wish you all the success you deserve. — R.L. (Rachel) Gibson, Editor & Trump-hater
