Hanoi launches art photo contest to celebrate Liberation Day

The contest will highlight Hanoi's cultural and artistic values, as well as arousing the capital's revolutionary tradition.

The Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports on April 2 launched an art photo contest to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the capital's Liberation Day [October 10, 1954-2024].


According to the department's Deputy Director Tran Thi Van Anh, the contest aims to find new photographic works with artistic values to illustrate Hanoi's important position and role.

"The competition also aims to promote the image of Hanoi as a city of fine virtues with friendly and hospitable people, to highlight Hanoi's cultural and artistic values, and to awaken the revolutionary tradition, millennia of civilization, self-reliance and aspiration for Hanoi's development," Van Anh said.

She added that the contest aims to create a playing field for professional and non-professional photographers to exchange and share experiences in responding to the artistic demands of the public.

"This is also an opportunity to encourage people, especially Vietnamese youth, to preserve and strengthen Hanoi's cultural identity in the period of integration and development," Van Anh said.

The Hanoi Municipal People's Committee has asked the Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports to take the lead and coordinate with district and city People's Committees nationwide to promote the competition to all professional and amateur photographers across the country, members of photography clubs and Vietnamese people living abroad.

The works must reflect and praise Hanoi as a heroic capital city, a City for Peace, and a Creative City where the quintessence of national culture converges and spreads throughout the country.

Each author can submit three works, which must be in line with Vietnamese national traditions and customs and must not have been submitted to other competitions.

Submissions will be accepted until August 1 and judged in September and October 2024.

The committee will award five first prizes, 10 second prizes, 20 third prizes and a number of additional prizes. Approximately 100 to 150 quality works will be selected for display and exhibition during the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of the Capital.
