WINNER: Second Place for Best Entry
SECOND PLACE FOR BEST ENTRY: “Dear Democracy...”
In "Dear Democracy…," a photojournalism student enters into a hypothetical conversation with our democracy. In collaboration with the Arizona State University Center for the Study of Race and Democracy, a diverse group of everyday citizens are asked if democracy was a person, and you could ask it any question, what would that question be? And, how would you answer your own question?
“'Dear Democracy' is a clearly voiced call to action for meaningful participation in our democracy. It's great to see such a rich diversity of voices weigh-in on the meaning of the word ‘democracy,’ which is one of the most recognized yet misunderstood terms in the English language.” - Looking@Democracy judge Byron Hurt.

Q: Democracy, how can we survive if we just shout at one another across a chasm of ideology?
A: I don't know ... all I hear are echoes that crescendo & fade ... somebody needs to cross over.

Thanks for making the video and beginning the conversation about what Democracy means. Many people like to think of the U.S. as a Democracy, but it has also been a Republic. If we were truly a Democracy there would be no need for an Electoral College.

A workable and working democracy instead of a broken one is what we need.
