Amateur and professional photographers, including expatriates in Vietnam, are invited to participate in the Circular Economy Photo Contest 2023.

A photo contest on circular economy has been launched, inviting Vietnamese and foreign photographers to participate.

The Circular Economy Photo Contest 2023 is organized to search for typical photographic works that promote the benefits and importance of circular economy in using natural resources, reducing pollution and environmental degradation, and responding to climate change.

The contest entries will create a repository of high-quality photographic materials to promote the circular economy model in the community and contribute to the development of the National Circular Economy Implementation Action Plan.
