Nguyen Vinh Hien, a native from the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long, grasped the first prize for his photo “Ca Mau Cape” at a photo contest titled “Vietnam from above”, the first competition for flycam photography enthusiasts in the country.

Organized by the HCMC Photography Association in conjunction with Phuong Nam Printing Co. Ltd., the contest received nearly 3,400 entries by 358 professional and amateur photographers from 53 provinces and cities across the country after more than four months of launching the contest.

Nguyen Ha Quoc Anh, director of Phuong Nam Company and a member of the judging panel of the contest, told the award ceremony last Saturday on Nguyen Van Binh Book Street in HCMC’s District 1 that Hien’s first-prize photo highlighting the breathtaking beauty of the cape in the southernmost region received compliments from the judging panel for its new angle and meaningful message in nurturing national pride and love for the country.

The best 100 award-winning photos displayed on the book street depict picturesque natural landscapes of different regions in Vietnam, ranging from the north-west to the southernmost province of Ca Mau.

Those who are interested in photography can drop by the book street to admire the award-winning photos from now until September 19. Visitors will have a chance to buy their favorite photos with a price of VND1.5 million each and all the proceeds from photo sales will be granted to a scholarship fund named “Chap canh uoc mo” to raise funds for building bookcases for poor children in rural areas.
