We are very curious to hear how your experience of this year’s Copenhagen Photo Festival was? What did you like? What would you like more of and how can the festival best meet your expectations in the future? 

As a festival that wants to evolve creatively and organically, meet our visitors in the best possible way and present new innovative exhibitions, emerging and established artists as well as present you with great events in a nice setting, we are always open to suggestions, constructive ideas and new partnerships. 

It only takes 5 minutes!

We therefore hope you will use 5 minutes of your time to fill out a short survey about your festival experience. You can also fill it out, if you did not attend. Either way you may have ideas, comments or suggestions for new paths or partnerships for the festival that could be interesting for us.

If you participate you get the chance to win two tickets for next year's festival. We will find the winner 15 August.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Exhibition assistant

The heart of the festival is beating at Refshaleøen where the centre is the vibrant hub for all our programme activities, events and exhibitions. To create a great experience for our guests and participants and make all work well around the clock, we count on our outgoing exhibition assistants.

The team of exhibition assistants move around to guide the guests, keep an eye on the exhibitions, help the exhibitors and make sure that the place is in shape and ready every day to host our activities. If you are service-minded, at ease with big crowds and like making things happen, this is a place for you.

Info Desk/Tickets Sales

We host and welcome a big number of international and local guests, exhibitors and programme participants, and we want them to feel welcomed, well-informed and ready for their experience at the Festival Centre, both indoors and outdoors. We run two info desks/ticket-sales-points, where a small and dedicated team of volunteers will be welcoming and guiding the audience, selling tickets.

It is your responsibility to inform the visitors about the festival and its exhibitions and guide them in the right direction. If you like having responsibility and you’re an outgoing and service-minded person, we’re looking for you. Good English skills are a must, since you’ll be dealing with our international guests. Speaking Danish is a big plus.

Events/Runners

We believe that good events create a good experience for both our guests and programme participants. We need your attitude and your smile to make our events happen during the 11 days of the festival.

The most important thing is to be service-minded and flexible. Along with your co-volunteers you will make sure that the event runs smoothly, the place is clean and tidy, and whatever help is needed at a given moment. Through volunteering for this position you will gain a lot of experience and organizing social events will feel like a piece of cake after that!

Production Assistants

Our valuable production assistants are helping with all festival preparations in the Photo Centre at Refshaleøen. We need strong and reliable people who are not afraid of lifting or other physical tasks to help build up the festival center beforehand and take it down afterwards.

If you are interested in event/venue production and want to learn what’s needed to make an 11-day international festival, this is a shift for you.

Super CPF Volunteer

As a Super CPFVolunteer, you can take assignments that require more responsibilities and you will play a more important role in our team. You can combine at least six (6) shifts according to your availability and preferences.
