(Reporter Tsai Fang-yuan of Military News Agency, Taipei, 20th) The French PX3 International Photography Competition 2021 (Prix de la Photographie Paris) has recently announced the winners of various categories of awards. Captain Huang Shao-en, press officer of the Military News Agency, was awarded the gold prize in the Journalist Category for his work "Behind the Flight". Major Liu Cheng-jun, press officer of the Youth Daily, was awarded the silver prize for his work "Push The Limit". Major Huang Jun-yong received two awards: bronze prize and an honorary nomination, and Captain Hsieh Pei-chen was also presented with the special bronze price for the "Chemical Soldiers" work piece. All these awards not only demonstrate the outstanding strength of the professional team in political warfare, but also helped display the images of the ROC Armed Forces with well-drilled training as well as their determination in homeland security efforts, bringing the Armed Forces of the ROC once again into the international arena.

In recent years, the Military News Agency has repeatedly achieved outstanding results in international photography competitions. Subsequent to the military academy graduation song created by colleagues from the Military News Agency that won the grand award in the London International Creative Competition in April this year, Huang Shao-en, the press officer, has again won the gold prize in the French PX3 International Photo Contest. This is a significant achievement for news units of the Armed Forces.

"Drill-master, you are simply awesome!" Huang Shao-en said, as the entry for the competition was taken as he interviewed the pilot. After the interview, he shared this unique perspective of the pilot, who was smiling from ear to ear.

Huang Shao-en said the ordinary "360-degree inspection" in the eyes of pilots is normal, yet it can have unexpectedly results as shown through the rare composition of the lens.

This has triggered Huang Shao-en to contribute his work. He believes that the daily drills and tasks by officers and soldiers of the Armed Forces might seem ordinary, but they in fact quite extraordinary. These servicemen have actually never realized that the subtleties of their tasks can be so special and meaningful. Most of all, they have become accustomed to these routines so they don't think of them as significant anymore.

Huang Sha-oen pointed out that the worked titled "Behind the Flight" not only addresses the perspective of filming from the rear, but also that everyone has strived so hard in unity and teamwork behind every successful flight mission.

Military News Agency stated that it will continue to work hard to create high-quality work in the future and present wonderful pictures of the diligent and well-drilled training by servicemen of the Armed Forces through social community platforms. Netizens are welcome to visit IG, Twitter, YouTube and other platforms of the Military News Agency as they show their support for our officers and soldiers.
