The 8th Angkor Photo Festival came to a close on Saturday night. We hope everyone is well rested and has already arrived safely back to their homes, and for the others who are still travelling – have a safe trip!
Here are pictures galore from the Closing Night at the FCC Angkor.
The night began with a great free buffet, provided by the FCC Angkor, one of the festival’s most supportive location partners. To Douglas, Sean and their wonderful team – thank you, it wouldn’t have been such a success without your help!
It was a big night too for the participants of the 8th Angkor Photo Workshops! Not only was it a night for them to finally relax and have some fun, it was also a proud moment for them to share their hard work with each other and the public.
After the screening of all the work, we announced the winner of the 2012 Photo Prize!
A big congratulations to Truth Leem, for winning the vote of the independent jury panel that met just that afternoon to decide the winner. Excerpts from her series, Island, can be viewed on the workshops’s blog, along with more information!

All the wonderful photos you’ve been seeing on the blog are by Montana Rakz, who joined us this year as the festival’s official photographer! Thank you for your hard work, Montana – we know it isn’t easy to have to work while everyone’s having fun!
To all our guests, visitors, friends, partners and sponsors — each year, the festival depends on you for its success. Without your help, participation and support, the 8th Angkor Photo Festival simply wouldn’t be the same.
