The jury selected the winners from thousands of entries from over 85 countries and territories. This year, six Vietnamese photographers joined the competition.
Winning photographs from the competition are exhibited from July 10 at Espace Dupon, a high-profile gallery in Paris and published in the high-quality, full-colour Px3 Annual Book. – VNS
