Dear Democracy...

WINNER: Second Place for Best Entry


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.
