Indiana State Fair 2023 - Volunteers Needed

IPPG is proud to again be a part of the Indiana State Fair in 2023.  This will be our tenth year coordinating the State Fair Photography Competition and gallery display. 

Each year has been a resounding success and we are looking forward to another group of very talented photographers, both amateur and professional, student and adult, to participate in displaying their photography skills and images.

However, all this can only be accomplished with the help of members of the photography community in our area to step up and volunteer some time.  You need not be an IPPG member, everyone with an interest in photography is invited to be a part of this Indiana State Fair tradition. We have a number of dates, times and assignments which are in need of people to help out.
