Winners of the Global SinoPhoto Awards 2021 announced ahead of Chinese New Year of the Water Tiger (January 25)
An image titled ‘The Dancing Dreams of a Mountain Girl’ depicting a young mountain girl dancing for her grandmother while she works making toy tigers in a small rural village in China is the overall winner of an international photo competition celebrating Chinese culture.
The judges feel this winning image by Chinese photographer Li Huaifeng captures “a moment of joy – almost other worldly vision of the child in the sun’s rays. It is as if Grandma is watching the child in a hologram.”
The Awards covered four categories: ‘Water’ (as 2022 is the Year of the Water Tiger), ‘Home’, ‘Work & Play’, and ‘Environment’.
The other category winners were: ‘Family Stuff – The Golden Anniversary Couple’ by Huang Qingjun, ‘Seasonal Sea’ – an environmental image by Yang Tongyu –, and ‘Seeking’ by Huang Jianjun. Read more
