The Media Team loves to meet interested volunteers, and some of our best volunteers are former (recovering?) members of the press that came to cover Burning Man and, well, never left. We're particularly eager to meet those with backgrounds in journalism, public relations, still and video photography, and related industries, but we can always use a hand with construction, hospitality and operations. Though many volunteers gift their time only during the event, many choose to volunteer year round, vetting press inquiries, reviewing image submissions, and doing a myriad of tasks relating to press relations. Living in San Francisco is not necessary to be an active member of this awesome team.
