Aerial shot of a woman drying fish at Long Hai fish market in Vietnam snapped by Khanh Phan.

The photographer said she was "overwhelmed" by the size of the fish market, where hundreds of local workers pile trays of fish to dry.

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.

Beautiful early entries include a photo of waves in Australia, a mountain in Iceland, and a black and white shot of a lion.

Khanh, a native of northern Thai Binh Province, lives in Ho Chi Minh City. She is not a newcomer in photography as over the past three years, she has won 30 awards at home and abroad. Last year, one of her photos was selected among 50 shortlisted for the AGORA award, organized by AGORA, a platform for photography lovers worldwide.
