Angkor Photo Festival 2010

If you’re going to be in Siem Reap between November 20 – 27 you may want to make a note of the sixth annual Angkor Photo Festival that will be taking place in that week. From the organization’s website:

“Created in 2005, the Angkor Photo Festival is the first such event to be organized in South-east Asia.

The festival’s 2010 program will present works photographed around the world through exhibitions and outdoor slideshows in different locations in Siem Reap. This is consistent with the festival’s mission of highlighting emerging South-east Asian photographers.

The strong educational goals of the Angkor Photo Festival set it apart from other photography events. During their stay, international reknowed photographers tutored free workshops for emerging Asian photographers and young Asian photographers supervise photo workshops for Anjali children’s project.

All events from the festival are entirely FREE OF CHARGE!”

There will be exhibitions, evening outdoor slideshows, events for children and the launch of Anjali House’s photo book of pictures taken by Anjali House’s former street kids. I hope to have the full schedule of events posted on the weblog as soon as it is available from the organization.

UPDATE: The catalogue of some of the fantastic photos from the new Anjali House photo book is now available.

Don’t forget to send me the schedule of events when it is available so I can get that up also. Good luck this year!

    orientation tour on top of Mt. Canoeing: halong bay cruise produces several astonishing canoeing it is best to ever
    have. Paul was worried he couldn’t survive in a position to sleep with a boat, but his concerns melted away because he fell in a very deep sleep. Obviously the items of beach straight out front of person resorts are better kept compared to more deserted stretches.
