Introducing Ko Thet-Pyay (aka @kothet_pyay) our #Happiness2020 Hero from Myanmar whose astonishing photo has won him the Credits Jackpot + 100,000 ⭐️s!

See what he had to say about his winning photo now! 👇

“Hi my name is Ko Thet-Pyay and I’m from Pyay, Myanmar. I started my life as a photographer in 2007, where I mostly shot indoor studio photos. From 2017 onwards however, I have been taking landscape pictures and other styles of outdoor photos.

I took my winning photo at the NgweSaung elephant Camp, Ayyarwady division Myanmar on the 28th of September last year when I spotted this girl on the way to shower the elephants early one morning.

Ko Thet-Pyay’s Winning #Happiness2020 Shot – Happy life

I was drawn to take this shot because both the elephant and the girl feeding it seemed so happy at their interaction with each other, it was a beautiful moment. Both subjects seemed to have the biggest smiles on their faces and so I knew it was the perfect shot of mine to upload to this contest and I’m so happy it won. Thanks so much to the judge, community and Agora team!”

The host for this Contest has been Le Van Vinh
