PSNews - The winning shots of the “Resilient Vietnam” photo contest went on display on the big screen of Times Square in the center of New York City, the United States, on October 15.

As announced by the Vietnam Public Relations Network, these photos are the winners of the “Resilient Vietnam” photo contest which was organised with the aim of capturing the resilience of Vietnamese people in the fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Approximately 1,000 entries by 350 professional photographers from across the country have been sent to the organizing board. 

Finally, six photographers were awarded in two categories, including professional photos and mobile phone photos. In addition, the “Inspirer” award was presented to photographer Nguyen A from Ho Chi Minh City.

The competition is being held to promote photography arts and utilise photography to tell stories about Vietnam during its fight against COVID-19. 

It is hoped that the contest does this in a lively way that is both full of respect and gratitude, Nguyen Khoa My, president of the Vietnam Public Relations Network, told an awards ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City.
