In addition, photographer Nguyen Tan Tuan won 2 consolation prizes in the Street category with pictures titled "Going Home" and “Children playing in sand dunes”. The former captured a woman driving a flock of sheep home after a day of grazing. The author said that Ninh Thuan is the hottest and driest land in Vietnam, so sheep must be herded very far to find fresh grass.
