Vietnamese photographers have won three awards from the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP) for works displayed at an international exhibition in Singapore.

To Cong Vinh won a silver medal in the individual category for his black-and-white photo Nuoc Ve (Fresh Water).

Cham Con (Take Care for Daughter) by Nguyen Dinh Duc and Ngay Tho (Naive) by Duy Anh were awarded bronze medals.

The exhibition and competition were organised by the Photographic Society of Singapore in partnership with FIAP to celebrate the 60th anniversaries of both organisations.

The event was held with the intention of showing how children go about their lives in different parts of the world, and to boost UNESCO's goal of increasing awareness about underprivileged children./.
