Two Vietnamese photographers claimed third prizes at the annual International Monochrome Photography Awards.

Le Viet Khanh won third prize in the architecture category for his shot "Buddha on the Top of Indochina" which captured a bronze statue of Buddha on Mount Fansipan at a height of 3,143 meters above sea level.

"This photo is an extremely rare moment when clouds follow the wind over the top of the mountain, but just enough to see this structure. The photo was taken on a very cold winter morning, after all-night-long heavy rain in this mountainous area," Khanh said.

"In order to build this statue, all materials were carried by local porters to the top of the mountain via a narrow steep trail."

Dubbed the "Roof of Indochina", Fansipan is located in northern Vietnam's Lao Cai Province, nine kilometers southwest of Sa Pa Town, a famous tourism destination.

Another shot titled "Old Man Cham" by Saigon lensman Nguyen Tan Tuan won third prize in the portrait category. The photo depicts an old man from the Cham ethnic minority reading an ancient Cham book.
