From hundreds of submissions we end up at one. The Wink Photo Competition 2018 has been an incredible success. Thanks to all who submitted – we have been amazed by your talents! But…there can be only one winner!

With incredible style and composition, this photographer blew us away with their submissions. Juxtaposed styles and cultures captured what defines us in a nutshell – Indochine 2.0. The conical hat, the modern-meets-old fashion. She really gets it.

Let us warmly introduce our winner…Hồ Nguyễn!

Going by the Instagram handle @by.hokim, this photographer blew us off our feet. Our judge, Justin Mott from Mott Visuals described her work as “a very solid fashion portfolio, with nice attention to light and creative compositions. Well done!”

For us, our journey with Hồ Nguyễn is just beginning.

Next month we will be hosting an exhibition at Toong Co-working Space in Saigon. Featuring photos from all of our finalists, along with our favourite winning images and a range of submissions that really caught our eye – but more on that later.

For now, let’s celebrate the winner and congratulate all five of our finalists for submitting some amazing photos too – it was a tough decision to make!

While you’re here, we’ll let you have a sneak peek at our favourite finalist submissions!
