"I am truly humbled and thankful for the opportunity I've been given by the judges," says Yoon. "This is an amazing opportunity for me as a new photographer. The skills and lessons at the wire are very particular, so I look forward to soaking in every moment."

The jury reviewed a number of submissions from early-career photojournalists before selecting Yoon.
