JIPFest is recruiting volunteers to help us run the festival between 13-28 November 2021. Volunteers will participate in a range of programs, and will work in groups, under the mentorship of JIPFest team members.

As volunteers, you will get the opportunity to be a part of one of the first large-scale events in Jakarta, as the city is recovering from a global pandemic. With the support of Indonesian Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry and DKI Jakarta provincial government, we try our best to provide a safe environment for volunteers and visitors of the festival, with new normal measures that include limited number of visitors at any one time as well as scheduled Covid-19 testing for all crews and guest stars. You will get the opportunity to learn about different aspects within a photo festival, from event management, documentation, technicalities, to public relations and digital communications.

The recruitment is open to any interested individuals with the age of 18 and above, from any professions. JIPFest will conduct a round of interviews and briefings to prepare the volunteers to join the festival. Each volunteer will be given a certificate at the end of the festival.
