Jazz Fest Volunteer Photographer Program

  • by

Each year the Archive selects Photographers to document the internal culture; people, crafts, music and food, at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Selected photographers will work according to a schedule provided by the NOJHF Archive and will be provided with festival and photo pit (in the front of each of the stages) access. All photography must be digital.

Photographers are responsible for providing the Archive with a CD of the images taken at the Festival along with a complete index of images on the disk. The images are owned by the photographer and may be used by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation for non-commercial and educational purposes. All rights, responsibilities and obligations on the part of the Foundation and the photographers will be outlined in a separate Terms of Agreement for those invited to participate.

· Volunteer Photographer Program Application (available from the Archive)
· CD of 8 images of recent cultural events.
· Resume to the Archive by November 30, 2008.

Applications and Guidelines are available from Archive. Applicants may call 504-558-6138 or email
