You can apply to our volunteer program by filling in the online registration form. As soon as the festival gets closer, we will contact you to schedule a short orientation call together.
Each volunteer at Rotterdam Photo will be able to join one or both of our teams. Currently, we are looking for people to help us with various tasks:
• Audience-related roles
Our festival yearly attracts around 10.000 visitors, and we would like them all to enjoy the festival's atmosphere. Your activities may include various and diverse tasks. Among them are checking tickets, helping as a host at festival events. We are looking for flexible, patient enthusiasts with a friendly attitude, ready to give all necessary information about the festival and our activities in English and/or Dutch languages. Working hours may vary depending on your availability.
• Production roles
This edition is big, and we have a lot of talented photographers, who would need your help with the creation and taking care of their exhibitions. Are you interested in taking a look behind the scenes at the Rotterdam Photo Festival? Then one of our production roles might be interesting to you. You will work closely with our production team, helping out with building up and taking down all festival-related materials as well as some exhibition materials.
Which benefits can you get from us?
We are grateful for your help and contributions to the Rotterdam Photo's vision. You help us to create the platform for creative exchange between photographers from different parts of the globe.
Besides our sincere gratitude and appreciation, volunteering at Rotterdam Photo can offer you such benefits as in-depth working experience in a small but dedicated team, new friends and connections, and of course, an opportunity to be part of the most vibrant Rotterdam photo festivals!
Additionally, we offer our volunteers:
