The Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant is glad to announce its partnership with the grant’s official media partner – Invisible Photographer Asia.

ABOUT THE GRANT:
A collaborative project by Yumi Goto of the Reminders Project and the Angkor Photo Festival, the Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant was launched in 2010. The winner of the grant will be announced at the end of the year during the 2011 Angkor Photo Festival.
The Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant aims to:
1. Support Asian Photographers
We believe there are many talented Asian photographers whose work remain unseen. The grant will give them the opportunity to gain exposure on an international stage.
2. Promote in-depth photo projects in Asia
We look for projects that go one step further in discovering and understanding important social issues in Asia that may be under-reported or neglected by the mainstream media.
3. Discover Fresh Perspectives
We encourage projects that approach issues with an original perspective and a unique eye, giving audiences different point of views and fresh information.
4. Make a difference
We seek projects that demonstrate a commitment to the subjects they work on, with an aim to make a positive impact on the local community.
