Vietnam to host first national cultural heritage photo contest

VOV.VN - A national cultural heritage photo contest and exhibition, the first of its kind in Vietnam, is set to be launched in late May, aiming to raise awareness of heritage conservation within the local community.

Competitors are able to submit their entries detailing various aspects of Vietnamese heritage, including local historical and cultural sites, architecture, art, and enthralling scenic spots.

The most outstanding artworks will then be selected for a photo exhibition. They will also be used for photo books to be released with the theme of Vietnamese cultural heritage. The selected photos will also be posted on various social media platforms for public view.

A launching ceremony for the event is scheduled to begin in late May, with the competition’s awards ceremony and heritage photo exhibition set to take place this November in Hanoi.

The event is being organised by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as part of activities in the lead up to Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day on November 23.
