Organisers of the Deputy Governor’s 5K are looking for amateur photographers to help document this year’s runs on Cayman Brac and Grand Cayman.

Volunteers can contribute photos, videos, articles, news reports, interviews and event reports, according to a press release.

“Once selected, citizen journalists will receive information guidelines and other important information at photojournalism workshops,” the release stated.

Workshops will be held on Friday, 13 Sept., for Cayman Brac volunteers and on Friday, 27 Sept., for Grand Cayman volunteers.

The registration deadlines are 11 Sept. for Cayman Brac and 25 Sept. for Grand Cayman.

Volunteers will receive an event T-shirt, a certificate of contribution signed by Deputy Governor Franz Manderson, as well as “exposure and experience in serving the Cayman Islands, and opportunity to develop a photography portfolio”, organisers said.

The DG’s 5K will take place on the Brac on Sunday, 15 Sept., and on Sunday, 29 Sept. on Grand Cayman.
