San Juan County Fair Photography Department Seeks Volunteers
San Juan County Fair Photography Department Superintendent Miles Crossen sent us a request for volunteers…
It’s almost time for the San Juan County Fair. And if anyone out there would like to volunteer to help out with the Photography Department display, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Beginning on Tuesday, August 16 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (and possibly a bit later depending on how quickly the team is able to hang all of the photographs submitted for judging and viewing) I could easily use a dozen or so volunteers. Realistically if you can stop by for an hour or so (maybe three hours?) that would be great. I can use two or three folks to assist participants in filling out the registration forms, and a couple of others separating the photographs by category, age, and professional or non-professional status.
Equally important, I could use six to eight volunteers to judge the photographs. Last year there were two, three person teams of judges. I’d like to have a similar setup this year as well. If the setup goes well, the judging should start by no later than 7 p.m. Tuesday and finish up by 9 p.m.
Another important group of volunteers needed would be those folks willing to put in a couple of hours at the Photography Department Information table answering basic questions and passing out ballots for the ever popular People’s Choice Awards. Fairgoers pick vote on any photograph on display that catches their eye. The daily winner is announced the following morning. Please help support and encourage our local and visiting photographers by manning the booth (or should I say ‘personing’ the booth for a couple of hours a day to help out).
It would be nice to have at least two people at the table between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I realize that requires a lot of time and effort. It will though, help make sure this year’s Photography Department at the San Juan County Fair a success.
Last of all, anyone interested in helping clear the display area on Sunday, August 21, 2016, let me know. Participants are supposed to pick up their photographs between 9 a.m. and Noon. Any pictures not picked up will be stored until the following year/
Anyone interested should email me at superfairphoto (@) gmail (.) com and let me know when you can help out.
