Exhibition: 1 Dec – 8 Dec 2012
8th Angkor Photo Festival to be held from 1st to 8th of December 2012 !
Created in 2005, the Angkor Photo Festival is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. Held each year in Siem Reap, the weeklong festival features a series of exhibitions, slideshows and outdoor activities. It serves as a platform to discover and re-discover talent from all over the world, and is now a regular highlight on the Asian arts calendar, attracting photography professionals from all over the world.
The unique educational goals of the festival set us apart. Held concurrently with the festival are two free educational workshops the Angkor Photo Workshops for young Asian photographers, and the Anjali Photo Workshops for underprivileged children from Anjali House.
This year, we were thrilled to receive a record number of submissions - more than 1,200 sets of work from 67 different countries. The selection process has been challenging but enlightening, and we sincerely hope you will all find something you love from amongst line up we have prepared.
Consistent with the festival’s mission of highlighting emerging Asian photographers, 60 of the 130 exhibiting photographers in 2012 are from Asia.
All our activities are completely non-profit and absolutely free-of-charge for all participants!
