Vietnamese photographers Nguyen Vu Phuoc and Vo Anh Kiet have recently won gold medals at the Color and Monochrome categories respectively at the international photo contest titled "Peace Is Children’s Right.”

The competition was organized by the Greek office of the international organization "World Without Wars and Violence," the Greek National Commission of UNESCO and the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP). It attracted 830 photos by 317 photographers from 62 countries across the globe.

According to the organizers, this contest is an opportunity for people to think, discuss and act by joining forces to allow more children to have access to basic rights: food, shelter, health, education, water, play, freedom of expression.

Nguyen Vu Phuoc won the title with his work “Tuoi Tho Thanh Binh” (Peaceful childhood) while Vo Anh Kiet won the contest with his famous “Bong Bong Cua Toi” (My balloon), the photo which earlier won second prize at the National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest 2012.

Together with Nguyen Vu Phuoc and Vo Anh Kiet, another photographer from Vietnam, Hoang Ngoc Thach, has also received the bronze medal at the Creative category of the contest.
