Volunteer for ACP

There are plenty of ways to get involved with ACP. Volunteering is a great way to experience the festival and volunteers are one of the central support during the festival. If you are a photography student, photography professional or lover of photography we would love to have your help.

As a volunteer you can sign up for Gallery Hosting during the weekdays and weekends, Greeting attendees during our Lecture and Film Series, Festival Guide distribution to Metro Atlanta galleries, museums, universities, coffee shops etc., Checking in photographers at our Portfolio Review & Greeting attendees at the Portfolio Walk , Art Handler at our Auction & Gala event and much more.

Also if you have special skills such as event management & coordination, exhibition installation, event photography, A/v Technical Support, Matting & Framing etc. Please let us know.

It is not necessary to have a photography background to volunteer. By volunteering you will have the opportunity to learn about photography, and meet others with similar interests and make connections in the photography community.

Volunteer Opportunities are live right now. Spots fill up very fast so don’t wait!

Public Art

Featuring temporary projects in various locations throughout the City of Atlanta, ACP's Public Art Project reaches beyond the audience of traditional art venues to expand the way audiences consider lens-based art.

Open Exhibition

This pin-up show celebrates the democratic nature of photography. Open to everyone, participants include amateur and professional photographers of all ages. Prizes are awarded in a variety of categories, including Viewer's Choice.

Photography Auction

ACP's Annual Gala Fundraiser is a world-class photography auction, featuring Denise Bethel, former Head of Photographs at Sotheby's NY as auctioneer. With a silent-auction, live bidding, and a full dinner, the ACP Photography Auction is a night to remember.

Film Series

The ACP Film Series explores the symbiotic connection between photography and film. While working with guest curators, we have featured early experimental films, current documentaries and everything in between.

Photobook Fair

Following the success of the inaugural Photobook Fair in 2009, ACP continues to provide an opportunity for photographers who have published books (on their own, or with publishers) to show, discuss, and sell their books to the public.

Portfolio Review

The ACP Portfolio Review and Walk offers artists the opportunity to meet with highly respected curators, dealers, editors, and agency representatives from across the US and beyond. There will be no ACP Portfolio Review in 2017, as we retool the program to create a new kind of offering for photographers' professional development.

Special Events, Exhibitions & Collaborations

Through partnerships with cultural, neighborhood, and community-based organizations, ACP brings unique opportunities for both artists and audiences across Atlanta.
