Some Vietnamese photographers have been honored among the authors of outstanding aerial photography photos in the Drone Photo Awards 2021.

Among them, the most impressive photo entitled “Fishing in Mangrove Forest” by Pham Huy Trung won the First Classified Award, People Category of this photography contest.

The award-winning photo by Pham Huy Trung showcases the creative eye of the photographer. 

    In the photo, a fisherman is on his working day in the mangrove forest in Tam Giang Lagoon in the central province of Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam. In the winter, mangroves lose all their leaves and turn white, showcasing the surreal scene seen from above.

    The award-winning photographer started his career in late 2016 and he has been traveling throughout Vietnam since then to capture the country’s natural diversity. Trung has always managed to shoot the scenes in unusual ways, from unexpected angles, and often from height. His outstanding artworks received numerous photography awards locally and internationally.

    Drone Photo Awards is the most important worldwide competition for aerial photography and video. It’s a project of Siena Awards, dedicated to a different photographic genre, deliberately separated from being compared to traditional photography.

    Around 14,000 images were submitted by photographers from 102 countries for this year's competition. These photos were classified into seven categories, including Urban, Nature, Animals, Wedding, Abstract, Sport, and People.

    Notably, despite the name Drone Photo Awards, not all of the photos were taken by drones. The competition is also open to aerial photography and videos that were taken from fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, balloons, blimps and dirigibles, rockets, kites, and parachutes.
