In three months since the launch of the contest, the organizers received 15,360 beautiful photos from 1,427 photographers from 51 countries and territories.
Participating entry photos had to cover four main topics, namely, nature, portrait, tourist destination and freedom.
The organizers selected 663 of the best photos and eight album photos to award prizes. 25 Vietnamese photographers won gold medals and many consolation prizes, including photographer Dang Van No for ‘Co Tu Kid’ photo and photographer Ngo Thanh Binh for ‘Song in the Rain’ photo. They were awarded two gold medals by the Federation of International Art Photography.
The contest was sponsored by the Federation of International Art Photography (FIAP) and organized by the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists (VAPA).
This contest was one of six largest international art photography contests ever to be held in Vietnam.
