The first prize in this year’s photography category was “Proud of Indigenous”, which showed the Tsou warriors’ pride and honor in the Indigenous culture with the Indigenous portrait composition without any embellishment. The second prize was “Yi Chi Ta Tao”, in which the author boldly recorded, through close-up photography, the appearance of the “long ear stick” of Taroko People, who had disappeared for a hundred years. In the early years, the long ear stick was used as tribal identification and decoration, and millet and salt needed for hunting could also be added, while women used needle and thread accessories for emergencies. The third prize “Go All Out” for the prize captured the competition of Malahodaigian bear load of Bunon People, showing the little indigenous contestants’ perseverance and persistence for the championship, and fully revealing the strong character of the Indigenous Peoples. The first prize of the drawing category, “Whisper in the Mountain”, depicted the innocence of indigenous children with exquisite skills. The children in the picture were standing on bare feet in the mountains and forests, and seemed to be quietly discussing what game to play later. The vivid expression portrayed the connection between the land and the Indigenous Peoples.

The second prize, “Formosa’s Smile”, vividly depicted the smiles of indigenous girls, reflecting the appearance of generosity and simplicity. The third prize, “Invisible,” showed that due to the change of times, Indigenous Peoples moved to metropolitan areas to seek employment opportunities.
