Photographers and storycatchers Jen Lemen and Stephanie C. Roberts were awarded $50,000 and named the grand prize winners of the Name Your Dream Assignment photography competition sponsored by Lenovo and Microsoft for their Picture Hope submission—a competition that attracted more than 2,500 submissions throughout the United States.

 

The Picture Hope assignment sends the two Shutter Sisters on a journey around the world where they consider the essence of hope and uncover stories of personal strength and collaborative courage from people (former modern day slaves, genocide survivors, refugees, young activists, old visionaries and new immigrants) who understand hope as an effective strategy for identifying, moving towards, and achieving what others might consider to be an impossible dream.
