Are you an emerging Asian photographer looking to take your craft to the next level?
Apply for the 2017 Angkor Photo Workshop!
The Angkor Photo Workshop is an annual tuition-free professional workshop aimed at nurturing emerging talent from Asia. Each year, 30 participants are selected from across the region to join us in Siem Reap, Cambodia, for an intensive week-long workshop conducted by international professional photographers who volunteer their time and expertise to be a part of this initiative.
Participants will expected to complete one photo story each during the workshop, and will be guided by their tutors through all stages – from conceptualizing story ideas and refining your photographic approach, to improving your techniques and the final, important step of picture editing. We believe in diversity and originality, and we want you to develop your own unique photographic style and vision.
Our workshops are open to photographers of all Asian nationalities, with no age restrictions. Before filling in our online application form, read our Application Guide & F.A.Q. for more information on eligibility criteria and how to apply.
Q: Am I a “student” or am I a “professional?”
A: You qualify as a ‘student’ if you are currently enrolled in a university or college. Graduate students are considered to be professionals. You qualify as a ‘professional’ if you have been working as a full-time photographer for less than 5 years. This includes time spent as a freelancer or in internships. If you have already been working as a photographer for more than 5 years, you do not qualify.
Q: I’m a freelance photographer who did not attend any photography courses, and have never worked as a full-time professional. Do I qualify?
A: Our workshops are prioritized for those intending to work as professional photographers. You may still apply, as long as you have had less than 5 years of experience in photography.

Q: What kind of photographs should I include in my portfolio?
A: Your portfolio can have a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 20 images, and it should reflect your vision and style as a photographer. Images can be either singles, or a full story, or a mix of both. The most important thing is to show us your strongest work that best represents you as a photographer.
Q: Who is going to be my tutor?
A: We will announce our 2017 Tutors line-up shortly. Participants will be selected by tutors, and the tutors’ choices are final. If you are selected, you will be immediately informed about who your tutors are.
Q: I can’t be in Siem Reap for the entire duration. Can I come later or leave earlier?
A: No, we require all participants to be present for the full duration so as to benefit from the complete experience of the workshops.
