THANH HÓA — Golden and silver awards were presented to the best television programmes at the 37th national TV festival, which closed on Saturday in the central province of Thanh Hóa.
Attending the event, held in the province for the first time, were Deputy Prime Minister Vũ Đức Đam, representatives of relevant organisations, together with nearly 1,000 representatives from television and radio stations nationwide.
This year’s festival received 491 entries competing in nine categories, including documentaries, reportage, talk shows, science education and ethnic minority television shows. The 37th national TV festival was an opportunity for those working in television to share their experiences and get updated on the latest trends to serve viewers better within one week of its organisation.
At the closing ceremony, the organisation board awarded 27 gold and 50 silver prizes, however, no stage programmes received a gold this year.
According to Trần Bình Minh, general director of Vietnam Television and also chairman of the festival, the close to 500 entries were the fruit of dedication and efforts of many television teams in recent years.
The jury highly appreciated the entries in nine categories, which reflected the thorough investment in topics, structures, image quality and harmonious combination among elements such as graphics, music, sounds and interaction. All the entries portrayed a vivid picture of information across the country in all the fields in the past year.
Also, according to the jury, there was not much difference in the quality of the entries by different television stations nationwide like the previous years.
Best photo entries of the photo contest Những Người Làm Truyền Hình (People Working in Television) were also awarded at the closing ceremony.
“The 37th national TV festival has ended successfully both in terms of content and organisation,” Nguyễn Hà Nam, permanent deputy head of the organisation board on evaluating this year’s event, said. “This TV festival has the best conditions and professionalism.”
The 38th national TV festival will be held next year in Đà Lạt City in the central province of Lâm Đồng and hosted by Lâm Đồng Radion Television. — VNS
