Can you help us photograph WordCamp London 2016?

Helping to document a WordCamp is a great way of volunteering in the community and means we’re able to keep beautiful records of the events that everyone works so hard to put on. WordCamp London is looking for a few volunteers to document the event between 9th – 10th April! You don’t need to have a top of the range camera to get involved so please don’t let that stop you.

If you think you might be interested in taking some photos for us please get in touch at london@wordcamp.org so we can coordinate our efforts and ensure the whole event is covered.

Volunteer photographers will receive image credits on the website and anywhere else images are posted. All images must be under a Creative Commons licence.

We’re a group of hosting and WordPress veterans who looked hard at the frustrations developers and designers were having with some of the traditional hosting companies – and even dedicated WordPress offerings – and decided to try to solve those frustrations.

Find Help On The Day: Volunteers

WordCamps are a place to ask and answer questions – but there might be a point during WordCamp London 2016 when you need to ask someone a non-WordPress related question: where are the nearest bathrooms? Where can I get some coffee? Where’s the Quiet Room?

For these questions, please look out for our wonderful team of volunteers who will be wearing bright blue t-shirts with the WordCamp London 2016 logo, as well as LOCALHOST, written on the back.

In all their glory, here they are:

Please get in touch with a volunteer if you need to report a Code of Conduct violation. If you cannot see a volunteer around you, please go to the main entrance in the Rocket where you will be able to find a volunteer or organiser.
