To protect the safety of everyone attending the event, proof of vaccination is required for all eligible individuals to attend the Medium Review and Festival of Photography. We ask attendees to wear masks for all indoor events, given the spread of the Covid BA.2 variant in spring 2022.

Medium Photo will continue adhering to all local Health Department guidelines. While we don’t know what these guidelines will include in May 2022, they may include a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours prior to attendance. Updated information will be shared closer to the Festival.
