Phnom Penh photo shootout winners


MORE than 200 participants brought their cameras out for this year’s annual Canon i-Qlick Photo Shootout in Phnom Penh at the weekend.

The 12-hour event was designed to encourage young people to take up digital photography and show judges the world through their eyes.

Open to everyone living in Cambodia, with no age limits, each participant was given three different themes to work with, and just three hours to complete each task.

Winning entries were determined on the day by an expert panel of judges, and the results, as we think you’ll agree, are certainly eye catching.

Prizes included US$200 vouchers for i-Qlick products, IXUS and A1200 digital cameras, and a free photography workshop in Siem Reap. Here we present some of the winning entries.
