The jury of the Fine Photo Competition 2014 awarded seven prizes to local photographers last week in Ho Chi Minh City.
The three top prizes were awarded on Wednesday for submissions in the Landscape and the Spontaneous Moments categories.
Photographer Tran Trong Luom won the special prize for his photo dang sau nu cuoi (Behind a smile).
The photograph brought attention and, ultimately, free corrective surgery to the subject, a boy who suffered from cleft palate syndrome.
The group gave away a total of VND 5000 million (US$23,400) in prizes, the organizers said.
