HCM CITY (VNS)— The HCM City Literature and Arts Association is organising a national contest in eight categories to unearth fresh talents, encourage interaction among artists and enable the public to enjoy new works.
The association hopes the competition will focus attention on achievements recorded as well as challenges faced by the country in almost four decades after the end of the American War.
It has invited talented experts in those fields to judge the works of both professional and amateur writers and artists participating in the contests.
Submissions of high-quality will be introduced to the public through print publications, association officials said.
Those interested in participating should send their works to the contests' organising board at 99, Nguyen Van Troi Street, Phu Nhuan District, HCM City.
The deadline for submissions will be June 30, and the prize winners will be announced in August.
The association had already launched two writing and art contests focusing on the nation's farmers and their lives.-VNS
