PhotoDoc Association

For the last ten years, PhotoDoc Association has been training more than 1,000 visual journalists and social activists to produce powerful stories about social justice, cultural heritage and environmental issues all around Myanmar. These short documentaries reach a large audience of up to 38 million viewers thanks to Myanmar Stories, our e-magazine. 

PhotoDoc also organises the yearly Yangon Photo Festival. The 12th YPF will take place from February 19 to March 14, 2020.

An audience of over 300,000 will enjoy free admission to the exhibitions and  screenings by more than 200 local, regional and  international photographers.
