Become a volunteer

In addition to the core volunteers who compose the organizational committee, additional volunteers are essential in the effective execution of the Festival’s projects and activities, in a wide range of needs and roles.

Volunteering at 4x5 Photo Fest is a great way to experience the festival, meet new people, engage in contemporary art, and play a vital role in promoting and celebrating photography.
