FozzyFest takes pride in supporting our local community with their talents. We provide opportunities for professionals and amateurs.

We’re looking for inspired:

  • Photographers
  • Videographers
  • Additional creative media outlets

Why join the Fozzy media crew?

  • The media crew is the critical creative force for year-round promotion. You are respected and recognized as such
  • An opportunity to contribute to an amazing volunteer and love-based festival
  • A chance to let your creative juices flow
  • *new for 2018 – 2 meals/day while on-shift (one in our camp, one vendor)
  • We will use your pics/vids as promotional material for social media, articles, website, etc.
  • Free ticket and vehicle parking pass to the 3-day festival
  • Fozzy Swag

Here’s what you need to know:

*New for 2018: to ensure certain acts and performances are captured, the media team will be assigned specific shots at particular times during the festival.*

PHOTOGRAPHERS: We require AT LEAST 150 polished and watermarked photos with a variety of content. Content and schedule will be clarified by the media coordinator. All photos must be uploaded directly to our Flickr page within two months of the festival end date or your full deposit will not be returned. It is preferred that you create an “album” on our Flickr page, with the title including your photography name plus “FozzyFest 2018”. Please include the FozzyFest logo and your logo on each photograph.

VIDEOGRAPHERS: We require a full-cut (minimum 3 minutes) video plus a 15 second teaser (for our Instagram page). We also ask that you provide us with all of your raw footage. Content and music may be specified by the media coordinator. All video footage must be sent to the media coordinator within two months of the festival end date or your full deposit will not be returned.

OTHER MEDIA:  Guidelines will be determined and discussed with you after acceptance.

*New members of the media team are required to pay a $265 deposit plus a $25.00 non-refundable administration fee. If you have worked with us before and have had a good relationship, the deposit may be waived. You will still be required to pay the administration fee. When we confirm you attended all scheduled shifts and once we receive your full festival content, you will receive your full deposit back. If you only provide partial material or show up for partial shifts, you risk not having your full deposit returned to you.

*We want you to get creative; however, the media coordinator may designate certain areas, scenes, people, etc. to each photographer/videographer so we have balanced content. Please cooperate.

*Applications are open from February 1 – June 30. The media coordinator will be in touch with you shortly after June 30 to let you know if you’ve been accepted or not.

*If you apply and are not accepted this year, it’s most likely due to not having enough positions available as our primary focus is on quality not quantity. Please don’t be discouraged! Apply again next year.
