‘Together Everybody Achieves More’. Our community is divers and that is exactly what we need. Together we know and achieve more. We love to pamper our volunteers and spend a lot of time and energy preparing workshops, trainings en meet ups. Without our volunteers, no exhibition!


As a volunteer at NFP you are part of a real volunteer community with regular meetups including a video-evening, drinks and trainings. You will meet new people, learn a lot about photojournalism and will see how a big event is organized.

Other advantages:

  • Enthusiastic and dynamic organization which values its volunteers
  • The opportunity to be a part of an ideological initiative and a fun team of volunteers
  • The opportunity to develop yourself and gain relevant work experience
  • The opportunity to meet (famous) photographers and the opportunity to expand your network with partner organisations and photographers.
  • The opportunity to participate in the training programs for education volunteers to give guided tours of the exhibition
  • A peek behind the scenes of a cultural event with 6000 to 8000 visitors
  • Free entrance to all NFP events, including the VIP opening, guided tours and lectures
  • A letter of recommendation on behalf of NFP (provided that you finished the training program)
  • An invitation to the closing party for volunteers in December

Our education volunteers guide the visitors and groups around the exhibition. With lots of enthusiasm they interact with the visitors in the exhibition’s living room and they provide them with the necessary information. They meet groups at the desk and man the wardrobe.

Note that the school tours will be given in Dutch, for this reason we have a maximum of 2 English speaking education volunteers.

The Front Desk volunteers are the ones to welcome and inform visitors at their arrival. They sell tickets at the front desk and manage the exhibition and the building.

Do you have something to offer? We are always looking for people with superpowers in PR, photography, graphic design and everything that we didn’t even know we needed.

Want to join? Apply before the 5th of October with Amber at vrijwilligers@nonfictionphoto.nl. When applying, please state which position you are interested in, which languages you speak and your telephone number. If you are still unsure or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us because we are happy to help you.

“I loved interacting with people and I’ve also acquired some new skills which will come in handy in the future!”
