Capturing the 2012 Presidential Campaign
The New York Times has sent out a request. They are looking for photos of buttons and brochures, screenshots of campaign messages, and photos of campaign signs and billboards for what they are calling an archive of the “ground game” of the 2012 presidential race.
According to the newspaper’s “Submit Photos of Campaign Materials” page, “Have you spotted interesting flyers around town or in local publications? Take a picture and send it to us. We’ll even accept screenshots of text messages and materials from candidates and other groups. We’re looking more for the raw materials of the campaign — postcards, posters and the like — than pictures of campaign events.”
They have an online form you can fill out to submit photos. The pictures can be up to 5 MB in size.
