Thousands of photos from 65 countries in the world were sent to Aerial Photography Awards 2020. The most popular categories were Abstract, Architecture, Constructions, Daily life, Landscapes, Sports, Travel, and Wildlife, Tien Phong reported.

In each category, the members of the jury gave a score from 1 to 20 to each photo and the average score of each photo was calculated to establish a ranking by category. In particular, to ensure fairness, all photos were scored without the jury knowing the name and country of the photographers.

The third place was "Anchovy catching" by photographer Thien Nguyen (Vietnam) with score of 17.5 / 20 and won the second prize in the category People / Daily Life. The gentle light of a new day illuminates the smoke emitted from the fishing boat engine and the shapes of green nets moving as the local fishermen pulling the nets. Anchovy catching is a familiar image in the coastal province of Phu Yen. The salted anchovy is the most important ingredient to make the traditional fish sauce - the quintessence of Vietnamese cuisine.

The field of grass under the wind looks like the waves. The grass is over 1 meter. The ten-hectare grass field is home to abundant fauna. The grass is cut to feed cattle and sometimes used as fertilizer and moisturizes the ornamental trees. The locals also raise ducks on the pasture.
