All topics of this contest were only revealed right before the starting time. All competition works were judged by famous photographers, namely Tran Tuan Viet, Hai Thanh, and Ha Kin, in the three groups of Tone sur tone, Reflection, and Youth Power.

In this year’s contest, all competitors are not limited by any criterion. In contrast, they are encouraged to employ any possible tool and device like drone or journey cameras to capture the most beautiful moment.

After 9 hours of work as well as a very challenging and objective evaluation, 10 winners of the contest were announced.
