The 2006 festival will focus attention on the "other" Asia. This means the region from Pakistan to the Philippines, with India and Indonesia as anchor points. This area is characterized by many contrasts, between the countries as well as within them. These contrasts, that show themselves on social, economic, political, religious and social levels, will form the starting point for this festival. Noorderlicht 2006 consists of three sections for which submissions are possible: photographers from the region itself, western photographers who have worked there and historical work from the region. The following countries are eligible: India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Nepa, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar (former Burma), Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, Maldives and the Philippines.  About Noorderlicht: The international Noorderlicht photofestival takes place each fall in Groningen. It is known worldwide for its combination of powerful photography and social awareness. The 13th Noorderlicht festival takes place from 10 September through 29 October, 2006. By tradition, in the even years the festival wants to bring its audience into contact with photography from a non-Western region. The goal is to avoid a biased Western view by showing a different, often surprising look from within. Website: Please have a look at our website for detailed information and the latest news.
