Cambodia-

Angkor Photo Festival, the festival first began in 2005, the town of Siem Reap had a rather different look. Back then, the now popular tourist haunt of Pub Street was still an unpaved, muddy road, and the bustling alleyways downtown had more livestock and cattle than cafes and restaurants.
Just like the town that has hosted it for eight years; the Angkor Photo Festival has gone through several changes of its own. Over the years, we have been constantly refining and developing the event, so as to bring us closer and closer to our aim of having the best international platform for photography in the region.

The Angkor Photo Festival does not impose a theme on any of their events. Instead, they concentrate on discovering and re-‐discovering talent from all over the world.
