Angkor Photo Festival 2011: Submissions Open!

It was just announced that the 7th Angkor Photo Festival will take place from November 19 to November 26, 2011 in Siem Reap (Cambodia). Details on the venue, programs and workshops, invited curators and other details will be shortly announced.

During the 2010 festival, 110 photographers (including 60 Asian photographers) presented their work, which was curated by Francoise Callier (also Program Coordinator), Antoine d'Agata and Yumi Goto.

The call for submission for the 2011 Angkor Photo Festival is now open. There is no imposed theme on the submissions, but single image submissions will not be accepted. Submissions have to be projects, and should also be accompanied by a short biography.

I've heard great feedback on this unique photo festival, and I have marked my calendar to attend it. It's a been a few years I haven't been to Siem Reap, so a photo festival of this caliber in one of the loveliest of Asian cities is impossible to resist.
