We will, as part of the workshop, generate a story of TB situation in Siem Reap area, as STOP TB Partnership is one of our sponsor.
Following the workshop I did (your coordinator) earlier this year (March 2009) with young Brazilian photographers in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, we’ll work with one photographer on documenting TB and MDR-TB extend and treatment for that part of Cambodia. If some already invited students express some particular interest to the story, they should send me a mail.
We have sent invitations email to a number of applicants and several more will be sent over the following days when we have a final line-up of tutors… For those invited, we are waiting for your response. In case you cannot attend it will free a space for another one… Remember that you have to support yourself your travel to Cambodia.
Over the following weeks, we’ll post more info on travelling, visa …
If you have been invited, start to think (and do research) about what story you intend to develop during the workshop.
That’s it, there was plenty of time… Now we have a lot of work to do…Give us maybe a good week or a little more and we’ll tell you (individually) if you are on the list for the free workshop 2009. Do not send us any email to ask if you have been selected or not…we will not answer.
To all the applicants to the Angkor Photo Workshop and all other good photographers of Asia, the Foreign Correspondent Club of Thailand (of which I’m a member!) organise a contest with prizes (money, flight tickets, etc…). Go to their website (http://www.fccthai.com/Photo2009.html), see if you qualify and just follow the guidelines. Good luck…
You have until the end of the month (August 31st) to send your application for the free Angkor Photo Workshop in Siem Reap Cambodia. We hope to have our work base at the FCC. Among potential new tutors we may have Nic Dunlop (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nic_Dunlop), a true Irish photog based in Bangkok who’s credit includes the founding of Duch…I talk to Nic a few days ago and he says that he’ll be thrill to get involved.
Our financial situation is on the low side but we intend to accommodate two dozen lucky Asian photographers for this workshop… keep posted! we tentatively will publish the list before mid-September.
With these words, a group of photographers including several of our past students are taking their ideas and work online. Bravo!
