Upon logging into GTAO following the October 12th update, you’ll find an email from Ghosts Exposed in your inbox. This email contains information about the event and provides instructions on how to successfully participate. The email message reads as follows:

When you come across one, capture a photograph and submit it to Ghosts Exposed to earn rewards, which include GTA$, RP (Reputation Points), and, if you manage to locate them all, the Ghost Exposed Livery for the Albany Brigham vehicle.
