The Winnipeg Jazz Festival is like most big events in the city — the key to its success is a team of volunteers working behind the scenes.

For the jazz fest, that means more than 300 people helping out in various tasks.

A select 15 have the enviable responsibility of chronicling the festival through a camera’s lens — from concert headliners to free-stage events. Here are some of their photos.
