Khanh’s brainchild was introduced among 15 other excellent early submissions to the annual Sony World Photography Awards 2021, divided into four competitions: one for professionals, an open contest, a student contest, and one for youths aged 12 to 19. Winners will be announced in April 2021, as reported by VNE.
