ORGANISERS of the Angkor Photo Festival say tomorrow’s final night will be the most important highlights because work from past and current students from the festival workshops will be shown.

Festival coordinator Camille Plante said organisers were excited to see the work that the 30 young Asian photographers at the workshop had completed, which will be shown at the FCC Angkor, Siem Reap.
“All the students and teachers will be there and it will be an interesting moment,” she said.

A camera and a video camera from Canon will be given away to the best story produced during the workshop. The winning work will be featured in The Phnom Penh Post.

Judges include Françoise Callier, festival coordinator; Sylvie Grumbach, director of press agency 2e Bureau; photographer and Sub Editor Will Baxter from The Phnom Penh Post; Vincent Wong from IQlick; and Matthieu Rytz, founder and director of Anthropographia.

Plante said another festival first was to show work from previous annual workshops. “There will be 12 photographers’ work shown from previous years, dating back from the festival beginning in 2005.”

She also said many of the previous photographers involved with the workshop had excelled in the photographic industry, especially Munem Wasif from Bangladesh who had won numerous awards.

Among those featured are Sohrab Hura showing a series on the children of Pati, and Kosuke Okahara, with brutal images of life in Medellin.

Plante said the night would end with a “big, big party’ to relax and celebrate”. DJ Illest and DJ Marco will entertain the crowd. The night begins at 8pm.
