Each year the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation 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/DVD 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 to promote the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation and 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.
