A quick post today as I am heading to Rencontres d’Arles 2010 Photo festival on Sunday and have a lot of work to do before I leave. Regarding the call for submissions from Asian women photographers for an evening showcase at Angkor Photo Festival in Cambodia from 20-27 November (see previous post), organiser Yumi Goto has updated one of the guidelines relating to eligibilty:
Applicants who are ethnically Asian but were born outside of Asia are also eligible, but must submit a body of work photographed in their forefather’s country.
We have received numerous questions about this stipulation, so would like to provide the following random examples:
1. A woman brought up in France but born in Cambodia may submit work from Cambodia
2. An American woman with a Chinese mother and Filipino father may submit work from China or the Philippines
3. A half-Asian woman is also eligible
Please email Yumi Goto, contact below, if you have any queries on eligibility. She will be happy to consider your specific situation.
