Get involved

IPF has been created to increase and improve real-life interaction between photographers, creatives and anyone interested in or curious about independent photography and creativity.

We welcome everybody to check out the exhibitions—whether at the openings or during each show’s run dates—to vote in the Photo Prize People’s Choice Award; to catch flicks at the IPF Shorts screening; to learn from some of the best at our night with Talkshops and be critical at the IPF Discussion; to browse, buy, talk and trade at the IPF Photo Book & Zine Fair; to update your wardrobe at our collab with The Social Studio; to check us on Facebook (/independentphotographyfestival), tag #IPF2016 and follow @I_P_F on Instagram, or say hi on Twitter (@I_P_F); and to party with us at our opening and closing events.

IPF is run by a team of dedicated, hard-working pals, but we can always do with a few extra pairs of hands attached to keen helpers. If you’d like to volunteer to sell zines, pull beers, carry bags of ice and generally help us Get It Done, send an expression of interest to with “IPF Crew” in the subject line.

Please let us know if you’ve got your RSA and if you’ve got any work/uni stuff that we should know about.
