The exhibition will display the best photos in the categories of open shots, landscapes, portraits and daily life.
The photos have been selected from 11,000 photos sent from 36 countries and territories, 88 of which have been given awards or certificates by the Việt Nam Artistic Photo Association (VAPA), and the International Federation of Photographic Art (Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique-FIAP).

The Museum, which covers 3,000sq.m, is home to 2,500 objects, photos and documents on the culture of Đà Nẵng and neighbouring central provinces.
The museum was built on the old site of the Điện Hải Citadel, which was built under the Nguyễn Dynasty between 1802 and 1860 in the 19th century. It also preserves a collection of 11 cannons unearthed at the citadel between 1979 and 2008. — VNS
