Illuminating the joy of peace in pictures
Several photographers have succeeded in interpreting the joys of everyday life before your eyes with mobile phone photos in a variety of styles, ranging from lively portraits and breathtaking landscapes to glorious nights and fleeting memories.
The Vivo VISION+ Mobile Photography 2020 awards are divided into six categories, including portrait, night, landscape, movement, memory and history.
Several prizes were also awarded as part of this competition, including Image of the Year, Winner, Honourable Mention and Finalist categories. Vivo named Zhang Yu’s creation entitled The Daily Life of Four Big Lipped Monsters as the image of the year in the Vivo VISION+ 2020 mobile photo contest.
The daily life of four noisy monsters, the image of the year in the Vivo VISION+ 2020 photo contest for mobile phones, made by Zhang Yu, China.
Zhang Yu suggested that the children refer to the gesture, as shown in the picture with their hand in the collar of his shirt, like the monster with the big mouth. A moment of playing children in the form of monsters with big mouths was captured by the creator with his smartphone and served as a beacon of hope in the middle of a difficult 2020.
Camp Night with Beloved Friends, a creation by Rifka Moh Lutpi from Indonesia, received an honourable mention. This picture shows three beloved friends talking in front of a burning fire on a dark night. The creator expressed a subtle way of thinking: In my life, camping is the most exciting story, the greatest moment…. We must enjoy every moment of life and live it to the fullest through a rich variety of activities.
