An image with the title of “Fishing”, snapped in the central province of Quang Ngai by Vietnamese photographer @alexcao has made the Top 50 of the #Green2020 contest. “I took this picture in the early morning of the first day of spring in Sa Huynh, which is famous for its fishing industry. At the time, the water was very clear and the boat was collecting nets that were full of anchovies,” the author shared when discussing the background behind the photo.
Bangladeshi photographer @photographerasaf comes out on top in the contest and is able to claim the top prize of US$1,000 after submitting a heartwarming photo of young boy plucking flowers in the rain in Akkelpur.
