The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) is launching a new effort to enlist citizen photo journalism as a means to bring more people into the 2008 Convention experience and help Convention visitors see the West through local eyes. As part of this effort, we’re looking for photos of people and places that represent the spirit of the Rocky Mountain West – photos we can feature on the DNCC’s official website, DemConvention.com, and showcase during Convention week in Denver. Help us introduce delegates and other visitors to your community and the Rocky Mountain West!
