The Reminders Project Asian Photographers Grant is a collaboration between:
Created in 2005, the Angkor Photo Festival is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. Each year, the week-long festival organizes exhibitions and outdoor slideshows in Siem Reap to celebrate international and emerging Asian photographers. The strong educational goals of the Angkor Photo Festival set it apart from other photography events. The free Angkor Photo Workshops for emerging Asian photographers are conducted by renowned photographers for specially selected participants, and the festival operates – the Anjali Children’s Photo Workshops for children of Anjali House.
The reminders (something or someone to make one remember) project was inaugurated in 2000 as a website and series of photo exhibitions. Reminders is a name that refers simultaneously to the photographer, the subject and the people who see it.
The reminders project aims to tell as many people as possible what really happens around the world. We show images taken by photojournalists who understand their subjects deeply and continue to cover issues through their own viewpoints. In addition to covering these stories, The Reminders Project creates slide shows, workshops and both national and international photo exhibitions.
The reminders project has no set agenda as to how and where we present the works created. We also have no requirements on photographers’ nationalities or their experience. But we have two fundamental ideas: to introduce our stories widely and to seek various viewpoints. Our ideal goal is for this project’s stories to endure through time.
