I am very proud to announce that Yen Baet was chosen as the Grand Prize Winner of National Geographic’s Exceptional Experience Photo Contest. “Rainy Night in Hallstatt” also happens to be her very first entry to any photo contest. Yen took the photo 2 years ago during a rainy and cold autumn day in Hallstatt, Austria. Yen Baet was featured on this blog in an interview back in February. In the interview, she shared her experiences as a photographer as well as empowering Filipinas to be confident and proud of their heritage. This amazing Filipina was also featured in an article by GMA News, where they cited her interview with Fil-Am Ako. Grand Prize Winner Yen Baet has won a nine-day National Geographic Expedition to Peru for two. Congratulation Yen and thank you for inspiring Filipinos everywhere with your story!
