Vietnam’s renowned landscapes are nothing short of breathtaking in these drone photos submitted to a local photography contest.
The contest, themed ‘Vietnam from above’, called on local photographers to submit their best drone photos of Vietnam for an upcoming calendar collection.
Organized by the Ho Chi Minh City Photography Association in coordination with Phuong Nam Calendar Company, the contest received nearly 3,400 submissions since launching in mid-2017.
The best 100 photos were shortlisted and entered into the final round. A panel of judges will score the finalists and the top 16 prizes will be announced on August 27.
“As the winners will be featured in calendars, bright and refreshing photos are preferred,” said photographer Bui Minh Son, a member of the judgment panel.
“Photos that are well executed but gloomy don’t fall into the scope of this competition.”
