The best 107 entries in the Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards competition are on display in Hanoi from November 2-11, as part of celebrations of Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (November 23), the seventh of its kind.
They are chosen from 4,573 ones by 526 authors to celebrate the 73rd anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh’s signing of the State’s Decree No.65/SL on preserving national cultural heritages.
Apart from the topics of nature, tangible culture, intangible culture, lifestyle, the competition adds new topics “Vietnamese traditional long dress” and “Travel with Vietjet”.
This year, the competition received the support of Canon which sponsored 18 major awards and held responsibility for printing high-quality photos.
It is calling for the discovery and sharing of natural and cultural heritage values, stories about Vietnamese nature, history and culture for publication on Vietnam Heritage magazine and online sites.
The exhibition will take place in Ho Chi Minh City on November 3, together with the 2018 Canon Photo Marathon tournament.
The next heritage photo exhibitions will be held from November 23-25 in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
