Viet Nam’s heritage photo contest launched
Entries can be single or sets of photos highlighting nature, tangible and non-tangible culture, and daily life, which should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the launching ceremony, Editor-in-chief of Viet Nam Heritage magazine and head of the organising board Le Thanh Hai said the event aims to popularise images of Viet Nam to international friends and raise public awareness of maintaining and preserving the country’s cultural and natural heritages.
The board will present 100 photos to a community-based charity programme that builds flood-resistant houses in disadvantaged areas.
The awards ceremony is scheduled for November in Ho Chi Minh City.
The 100 best entries will be chosen for display from October until the end of the Lunar New Year festival at tourist attractions, museums and universities in Ho Chi Minh City, Phan Thiet, Nha Trang, Da Nang and Ha Noi.
The contest is a joint effort between the Cultural Heritage Association of Viet Nam’s Viet Nam Heritage magazine and Canon Marketing Viet Nam company.
