We are very happy to announce the five finalists of the inaugural Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant.
Selected by our jury panel from submissions received from all over Asia, these five finalists will have their work showcased at this year’s 7th Angkor Photo Festival, which is held from November 19 to 26, 2011, in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The winner of the grant will be announced during the festival, and will receive financial support of US$3,000 for his/her winning project. The project will also be shown next year at the 8th Angkor Photo Festival.
