Photo contest to highlight beauty, utility of headgear
HCM CITY — A photography contest called Non La Que Huong (Homeland's Conical Leaf Hat) has been launched for both amateur and professional photographers in Viet Nam and abroad.
Photos featuring images of traditional palm-leaf hats like non la (conical leaf hat) and non quai thao (flat hat with fringes) can be submitted to the organisers until June 19.
Luong The Vinh, director of the Nu Cuoi Viet Entertainment Company, which is organising the contest, said it aimed to find and preserve beautiful images of the country, especially its traditional features like the conical hat.
Vinh said selected photos would be uploaded at www.nonlavietnam.vn, a website that preserves all articles and images related to Vietnamese palm-leaf hats so as to promote them internationally. — VNS
