In February 2009, Institut français de Birmanie and the French photographer Christophe Loviny, noticing the great deal of interest for photography in Myanmar, together with the lack of photo-oriented events, decided to organize an ambitious event : The Yangon Photo Festival. This festival, the first of the sort ever organized in Myanmar, gives a very broad picture of what photographers are doing around the world on an international level, and gives Myanmar photographers training through workshops.
