We are pleased to present the Programme Preview the 12th Edition Angkor Photo Festival & Workshops. The longest-running photography event in Southeast Asia, the Angkor Photo Festival & Workshops is a free international platform and educational resource for established and emerging photographers.
Our organisation remains strongly committed to nurturing and promoting young Asian talent, and encouraging the development of photography in the region.
ANGKOR PHOTO WORKSHOPS [ DEC 2 – 8, 2016 ]
Created in 2005, our tuition-free professional workshops aim to provide affordable and accessible training to emerging talents from Asia. Selected from our annual open call for applications, participants are tutored by international professional photographers who nurture each individual’s unique photographic voice and vision.
ANGKOR PHOTO FESTIVAL [ DEC 3 – 10, 2016 ]
Featuring the work of over 130 photographers from 45 countries, our 12th Edition’s festival program showcases some of the best photography projects from all over the world. Our exhibitions will run throughout the festival week, and our daily projection evenings will be held in a brand new open public space! Our environmental-themed ‘GreenLight Exhibition Series’ continues for its third year, as well as the ‘Impact Project’, a projection showcase highlighting positive efforts by individuals and organisations. Look out for our 2016 Guest Curator Showcase, ‘We Alter Nature’, curated by Claudia Hinterseer.
ANJALI KIDS PHOTO WORKSHOPS [ NOV 25 – DEC 7, 2016 ]
Initiated in 2005 by Magnum photographer Antoine D’Agata, the Anjali Photo Workshops engages the children of Anjali House in creative expression through photography. The workshop encourages and nurtures the children’s innate creativity – an important part of education, and a key tool in fostering scholastic development, self-confidence, and social interaction.
12TH EDITION: ANGKOR PHOTO WORKSHOPS
Created in 2005, the free Angkor Photo Workshops aim to provide affordable, accessible and high-quality training to the region’s emerging talents. The workshops are aimed at elevating each participant’s photography by challenging their personal approach and understanding of the craft. Tutors seek to nurture each participant’s individual photographic vision and voice.
Each year, 30 emerging photographers from Asia are selected from our open call for applications. Under the tutelage of six international photographers, participants complete a photo essay during the intensive week- long workshops, culminating in a showcase of all participants’ work on the festival’s Closing Night.
With a network of over 280 workshop alumni all over Asia today, the Angkor Photo Workshops have also played a critical role in developing Asia’s photographic community. Over the past 11 years, it has been heartening and humbling to witness many of our alumni returning to become mentors and tutors for their younger peers.
Initiated in 2005 by Magnum photographer Antoine D’Agata, the ANJALI PHOTO WORKSHOPS engage the children of Anjali House in creative expression through photography. The workshop encourages and nurtures the children’s innate creativity – an important part of education, and a key tool in fostering scholastic development, self-confidence, and social interaction. Guided by volunteer photographers, the children are brought on special excursions to different places, and the older participants also get to bring their cameras home to photograph their lives, friends and families. As always, the children’s photographs will be showcased on ‘Children’s Day’ during the festival, a special event which brings the kids together with festival attendees-
