The special prize of Canon PhotoMarathon 2017 in HCMC goes to Pham Ngo Dinh Luan - PHOTO: COURTESY OF ORGANIZERS

The panel of judges of Canon PhotoMarathon 2017 in HCMC on Sunday named winners for their outstanding works that well depicted the topics of “Saigon Smile,” “In the Middle” and “Condominium” in the city.

Pham Ngo Dinh Luan scooped the special prize of the annual photography contest for his photograph featuring a person who thurified and prayed at a pagoda. The prize comprised of a Canon EOS 6D Mark II camera body, a Canon PIXMA Pro 100 printer and a ticket to take part in Canon PhotoMarathon Asia Championship 2018 in Japan.

Luan said when he had accepted the “In the middle” topic, he thought about something in balance, quiet and sacred. He took a picture of his intention after more than two hours waiting at the pagoda.  

Luan described the prize as a big motivation for him to keep his photography career. Luan had participated in Canon PhotoMarathon for four years and worked as a professional photographer for nearly four years.

The first prizes of the “Saigon Smile” topic went to Trinh Phuong Thao, of the “In the middle” to Truong Thi Kieu Tien and the “Condominium” to Nguyen Thanh Tuyen. Each of them got a Canon EOS 77D camera and EF-S18-55mm IS STM lens and a PIXMA TS8070 printer.

Organizers of the Canon PhotoMarathon also handed a Canon EOS 800D camera and EF-S18-55mm IS STM lens and a PIXMA G2000 printer to each of the winners of the second prizes of the three-mentioned topics, and a Canon EOS M6 camera and EF-15-45mm IS STM lens and a PIXMA MG3670 printer each to winners of the third prizes.  

About 7,000 contestants joined the Canon PhotoMarathon 2017 in HCMC, which was held on the final day of the Canon Expo 2017, a four-day exhibition which showcased Canon’s new technologies, products and services.

Hiroshi Yokota, CEO of Canon Marketing Vietnam, said the number of contestants in HCMC this year nearly doubled that at Canon the PhotoMarathon in 2016. The contest had been organized in Vietnam for 12 years as an annual major event for young photography lovers.
