A picture of children playing with old motorcycle tires has won an international photo competition about people having a good time. 

Children here are poor, they are not familiar with modern electronic devices like the children in the city. They work hard but theyre always happy, and their joy comes even with simple games, Tran Tuan Viet said about his photo taken at a dune in southern Binh Thuan Province, which is the winner of #Fun2020 photo competition organized by Agora, a platform for global photographers. Tran plans to donate the $1,000 prize money to support the Covid-19 fight in Vietnam. Photo by Agora/trantuanviet.
