Weapons once used as instruments of war are now being remade into sculptures that inspire peace. See more photos in the photo gallery.
“The training has made me realise that weapons should not be used as a means to solve problems. They are better turned into works of art which tell people in the world that peace and non-violence brings about development and happiness” —PAC Phase One participant Chhouk Rithy
“The new generation is like a blank sheet of paper; very white. So if we can bring the message to the young generation, it’s a good opportunity to be aware of peace.”
—PAC Phase One Participant Chhay Bunna

I have just suggested KhmerOS project to launch an online campaign to spread the words of Khmer Unicode Fonts and Khmer Language Software.
To begin with, I am going to first start with small. Camboda bloggers and Internet users play an important role in telling their friends and other users. Now we are looking for button graphics to represent Khmer Unicode Fonts, a Khmer email application, Moyura, and a Khmer web browser, Mekhala.
So we are calling for creative graphic designers to voluntarily come up with great designs. You can submit your samples to me via email:tharum [at] gmail [dot] com
If you have passion in promoting Cambodian made products and want be part of this campaign, you can also forward this announcement to friends and colleagues.
Only successful candidates will be announced on this site. Your name and blog URL will be placed on my sidebar as a dedication to your works. And your designed button graphic will be used officially on many sites and weblogs.
- Button graphic size: 80×15; 110×32; 180×60
- File types: *.jpg; *.gif; *.png
For further info about Khmer Unicode and the Khmer language software, please visit KhmerOS project’s site.
Deadline: September 03, 2005

Not surprisingly to see a taxi driver ingeniously make use of blog as an advertising tool for his small business. There may be more creative ways from other Cambodian people to feature in this site. Until next time, stay tune.
