Votojournalism is a portmanteau word combination of voter and photojournalism, used to describe photographs taken in a political campaign by the general public. These photographs are uploaded to an image-sharing website such as Flickr and thereby made accessible to all internet users via direct access or a feed.

The word appears to have been coined by TechPresident.com in February 2007.
This is a [1] of the most recent images uploaded to the Flickr photo-sharing site that are tagged with the name of one of the presidential candidates. ... We call it "votojournalism" because it is a prime example of voter generated content, photojournalism by the people.
