Angkor Photo Festival: Nov 17-28, 2007

A reminder that the third annual Angkor Photography Festival is to be held in Siem Reap, Cambodia, for 12 days of photographic events and celebrations from November 17 to 28, 2007.

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.

Participants share their art by leading free workshops for young Asian photographers, and give their time to outreach projects for street children, landmine victims and HIV+ women .

The free workshops run from the 17th to the 24th of November. This year again Philip Jones Griffiths, Patrick de Noirmont, Suthep Kritsanavarin, Antoine d'Agata and Roland Neveu have volunteered to tutor. Marc Brincourt, chief photo editor of Paris-Match, Benoit Gysembergh and Tengku Bahar of AFP will also participate.
