UnMEDIAted Content

Capture The Forest on one of the best teams at the festival! The UnMEDIAted Content Program is an open audition to join the 2019 Electric Forest Content Crew and work on your own special assignment.

All interested content creators are invited to submit a unique project that is custom-created to capture the spirit of The Forest outside of Rothbury, and to propose what they would capture at Electric Forest 2019. HQ’s favorite projects will be shared with the Forest Family, with one content creator will be selected to capture their vision on site.


How to Apply

Step 1: Go out into the world around you and create a concept that reflects your artistic ability and the type of scenes you hope to capture at this year’s event. You don’t have to visit a forest, you don’t have to shoot a concert – show us how Electric Forest inspires you, in whatever context you like.

Step 2: Upload your gallery to the internet, either with Dropbox, Google Drive, or a personal portfolio page.

Step 3: Share your favorite concepts with the hashtag #EF2019Content on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, or wherever your wild internets roam, and tag Electric Forest so we can see it!

Step 4: Send your gallery to HQ via the application form.


HQ will provide:

  • Two (2) GA Camping Wristbands to Electric Forest 2019 (one for you and one for a guest)
  • One (1) Appropriate Content Pass (to be used alongside your GA Wristband)
  • Your photos from The Forest shared throughout the year on Electric Forest digital platforms!


Submissions will be accepted for review March 16 – April 19, 2019 at 11:59pm ET. The photographer will be selected and announced in May of 2019.
