NINH THUẬN — Photographer Huỳnh Công Nghĩa of Ninh Thuận Province has won first prize at the 24th Southeast Region Photo Contest.
The announcement ceremony was held in Phan Rang City in Ninh Thuận Province earlier this week.
Competing with 269 photographers from eight provinces, Nghĩa won for his colour photograph, Khoảnh Khắc Tuổi Thơ (Moment of Childhood), which depicted a girl playing with a baby goat on a field in Ninh Thuận, a coastal province in the south.
Nghĩa, a member of the Ninh Thuận Photography Club, said that his “images come from genuine emotions and capture real human beauty. In my works, viewers can see my region’s developments," he added.
The second prize was shared by Trương Thị Hạnh of Lâm Đồng and Trần Đình Thương of Bình Thuận.
Their works feature landscapes and sport activities in their homeland.
“The winners captured the beauty of the region and local people in daily life and work,” said Vũ Quốc Khánh, chairman of the Việt Nam Photographers’ Association and a member of the jury.
The competition received 1,922 colour- and black-and-white photos.
The event was organised by the Việt Nam Photographers’ Association and Ninh Thuận Province’s Literature and Arts Association to feature the economic, political, cultural and social activities of the region.— VNS
