Tickets for the October 15 installation of TEDxPhnomPenh will officially go up for grabs starting next Monday, August 29.

As reported inThe Post on August 8, TEDxPhnomPenh is a “one-day celebration of ideas worth spreading”, with the theme of the upcoming event being Work | Play. A number of speakers will entertain and inform the audience using a combination of video and live talks.

Seating for the day is extremely limited so, to earn a ticket, interested parties must submit a digital image that answers the question: “What do you do?” by writing a one to three-sentence caption on the image that clearly refers to and represents the Work | Play theme.

Images submitted should be in a .jpg or .png format, appropriate for all audiences and completely original – plagiarised work will not be considered. Once an entry is received the author will be notified and asked to RSVP to the event.

They will then be added to the guestlist for entry on the day. Attendees must purchase their tickets at the door which cost $10 for foreigners and $5 for Cambodians.

Entries will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis and will only be accepted after 12:01 Indochina Time on August 29 and should be emailed to along with an agreement for it to be released to the public. For those who enter, submissions will be confirmed by October 1 and close on September 22.

Most exciting is that the best submissions will be displayed at the TEDxPhnomPenh event which will be held at Northbridge International School on October 15. Further information can be found at and any questions can be emailed to
