Angkor Photography Festival

The third annual Angkor Photography Festival will be held in Siem Reap, Cambodia, from the 17 to 28 of November this year.

From their site:
The festival brings together well-known and passionate photographers from across the world in a spirit of creativity and sharing. It showcases exhibitions and outdoor projections about Asia by renowned artists and photojournalists, while differentiating itself from other events with its strong educational goals.

Outreach programs for street children, landmine victims and HIV-positive women will be held alongside free workshops for young Asian photographers. Gary Knight from VII will be heading an assignment-based workshop. There is also a commercial workshop led by Vincent Soyez and Laurent Zylberman. Lastly, there is the photography contest on Flickr.

It looks set to be an exciting festival once again. The list of participants contains illustrious names from all over the world. It would definitely be a great experience to meet some of them. I missed the festival last year when I was in Cambodia and it looks like I would be missing it again this year due to school. I would have enjoyed doing a reportage on the event!
