A total of five photographers from Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam will compete for the prize for a star shooting assignment in New York, and also attend the Canon photo clinic in Japan. Free. Wow!
So for that, they had to prove their worth in the qualifying round — three round matches against Justin Mott, an American professional photographer who lives in Vietnam.
