Over 500 volunteers take part in this human adventure and make sure the festival is a pleasant experience for the photographers and the visitors as they undertake their duty with dedication and enthusiasm – a major asset.
Every year exhibitors and photographers stress the warm and friendly welcome they enjoy.
The Montier Photo Festival is a good example of local development. It is also a great time to meet, give time, socialize and support each other. The people from Montier-en-Der have joined forces to carry out this humanistic project which strengthens our community.
The Festival simply would not go ahead without the help of all our volunteers.
People from all walks of life have rallied the Festival. All kinds of skills come in useful:
Manual labour in the lead-up to and after the Festival to manufacture, set up, take down, bag, but also for transport and logistics…
Eclectic skills during the Festival: security, control, transport, sales, translation, ticketing, manning information points, welcoming guests and informing festival-goers…
We also rely on volunteers throughout the year for many different tasks : logistics of our touring exhibitions – exhibition handling and installation – proofreading, translation, mailshots….
