Are you going to be in Angkor Wat in the period November 23 to November 28? Then here is an event you don’t want to miss. The NGO Photography for Change is once again hosting the Angkor Photography Festival:

“This festival was created in 2005 and this year, for the fourth time, the temples of Angkor will become a hub that will draw both famous and passionate photographers from around the world. The Angkor Photography Festival showcases this year outdoor projections by celebrating regional and international photographers in different locations in Siem Reap”

This is not just a fantastic event for photography lovers. The program sets itself apart with its educational and outreach goals:

“The strong educational goals of the Angkor Photography Festival set it apart from other photography events. During their stay, famous photographers will tutor free workshops for emerging Asian photographers and the festival will also present its outreach programs for vulnerable people.”

Photography for Change also sponsors Anjali, “a centre that provides a safe and fun educational environment for almost 80 children.” Once part of the well known Green Gecko House, Anjali is now run independently given its growth. In addition, there is the Artswork workshops where women with HIV and disabled persons are able to express themselves through arts therapy.

It sounds like a very exciting event that will visually excite and intrigue and also be spiritually stimulating. So make sure to mark the dates if you are going to be there between November 23 and 28.
