An annual photo contest marking the 2019 Lunar New Year organized by the Ho Chi Minh City Photographers Association has come to an end and two photographers have been honored with the first prizes.
This year’s competition received a total of 2,662 entries of 279 photographers from 49 provinces and cities throughout Vietnam.
The contest included two usual themes: spring in the country and birds, flowers, fish, and bonsai, along with a new category, insects.
There were, however, only two first prizes, namely Huynh Pham Anh Dung in the ‘spring in the country’ category and Bui Trong Hieu in the ‘insects’ category.
A total of 120 photos have been chosen to be displayed at an upcoming exhibition.
Among them are two first prizes, four second prizes, six third prizes, and 10 consolation prizes.
