The photos are winners of the first Phu Yen travel photo competition this year, jointly held by the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists to promote the province as a friendly and appealing destination.
Some 110 out of 235 beautiful travel snaps by 35 photographers sent to the competition went through the next round, showing the beauty of Da Dia Reef, Mon Beach – Dien Cape, Xuan Dai Bay, O Loan Lagoon, Xep Beach, Ba River and more.
About 90 works selected for the exhibition, which opened on October 14.
The judges gave the first prize to a photo named “Dem trai Hon Yen” (A camping night in Yen Islet) by Le Hong Nguyen and awarded 15 others.
According to Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ho Van Tien, many photographs were taken by flycams from breathtaking angles that normal cameras cannot capture. These artworks will help promote Phu Yen’s tourism among tourists both at home and overseas, he said.
