This year, Americans will once again be asked to decide who will lead our country for the next four years. With campaigns stretching from the largest cities to the smallest towns, Americans will come out in droves to take part in it and have their voice heard. Since photography is the one true universal language, Sony, The Sony Artisans of Imagery, Popular Photography and American Photo are challenging our nation to document this historic election year with pictures. All are invited to participate. With the ability to capture moments in time and tell a story without narrative, no medium is more powerful than photography.
