Watch out as the 8th Angkor Photo Workshops will open for applications on May 15th.
The Angkor Photo Workshops are an annual free professional photography workshop for young Asian photographers. Held each year in Siem Reap, Cambodia, 30 specially selected participants will be tutored by international photographers who volunteer their time to be a part of this initiative.
We are really excited to find out who will be joining us this year for the workshops — stay tuned for more news and information on how to apply!
If you haven’t already done so, there’s still time to get your submissions in for the 8th Angkor Photo Festival. Do it soon – the deadline is coming up on May 31st!

We’ve already been overwhelmed by the submissions received so far, but we’re ready for the flurry of entries that always comes in as the deadline approaches!
We will also soon be updating you about Andri Tambunan’s ongoing project in Indonesia on the under-reported HIV/AIDS epidemic in Papua. Andri was the winner of the inaugural Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant, and his work will be exhibited this year at the 8th Angkor Photo Festival.
Check out some of his work here if you haven’t already seen it!
After discussions with the Reminders Project - our collaborator on the grant – we have all decided to develop the impact of the grant, and will be making the Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant a bi-annual event. We will be opening again for applications in 2013!
