DA NANG — A youth photo contest was launched yesterday in the central coastal city of Da Nang, seeking to highlight environmental challenges facing the city. Part of an environmentally and climate-friendly urban development in Da Nang funded by the German Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development, the contest invites entrants aged 16-30 to take photos of their neighbourhoods and present their perspectives on the city's environment.
Photos could only be taken using film cameras supplied by the awarding authority, ensuring equal conditions of accessibility and quality. Moreover, traditional film photography was viewed as an artistic tool for obtaining exceptional photographs. The cameras, which are made of 82-per-cent recycled materials, will be collected afterwards for recycling.
The awards ceremony and exhibition of the winning photos will take place on August 22-28. — VNS
