Media captionFive high profile people reveal what freedom looks like to them

This year the BBC is examining the concept of "freedom" and what it is.

We want you to take part, and using your photos, drawings, paintings, animations and videos, show the world what freedom looks like to you.

We want to showcase the best of your submissions across the BBC and get you involved in the global conversation using the hashtag #freedom2014.

Maybe you took a picture when the Berlin Wall came down, maybe it was the moment you learned to drive, or perhaps the wilderness represents liberty to you.

However, there are some ground rules. Anything you submit must be your own work - that includes any music you use. We also want you to explain to us why the image represents freedom to you and how you created it.

You'll need to upload your entry to a picture or video-sharing website where we can access it, and remember to upload in the highest resolution you can to make the best of your work.

You can submit your vision of Freedom from 29 January to 15 March 2014.
