|A contest on modern fairy tale creation is launched in Hanoi on October 17 with the aim of eliminating gender stereotypes and preconceptions in fairy tales.
Jointly held by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women (UN Women), the Irish Embassy in Vietnam and ChildFund Vietnam, the contest has been designed for Vietnamese of all ages, especially children and teenagers.
Winners will have a chance to work with a group of experts to develop their stories into comic books or cartoons.
The contest’s objective is to highlight the improved public awareness of gender equality in Vietnam, particularly in the sphere of literature and arts, creating a premise for next generations to access gender equality-related books.
It targets the empowerment of women and children, and the reduction of gender inequality in literature.
The entries, each not exceeding 2,000 words, will be submitted to UN Women Vietnam’s address at 304 Kim Ma, Hanoi, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The contest will last until November 27, 2019.
