Cao Nguyen Vu has won first prize in the 'General-Color' category at the HIPA International Photography Awards for a shot of hundreds of fishing boats anchored in Quang Ngai Province.

"The photo was taken in 2020 as fishermen's boats lined up neatly while anchoring to avoid typhoon Molave, the strongest tropical storm to hit Quang Ngai," says an entry in the official Facebook page of Hamdan International Photography Awards (HIPA).

Vu gets $15,000 for his winning entry.

HIPA is an international photography award founded in 2011 under the patronage of the crown prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid bin Mohammed Al Maktoum.

The award's 11th edition, themed Nature, attracted thousands of entries from around the world competing in different categories.

Vu, a native of the central province of Quang Ngai, said he hoped to introduce to the world the landscapes and daily lives of his hometown where most locals earn their living by fishing.
