HÀ NỘI — A group of reporters from the Nhân Dân (People) newspaper and one from the Người làm báo (The Journalist) magazine have won the top prizes at a national press contest promoting the fight against corruption and wastefulness in the country.

The two prize-winning reports were selected from more than 1,120 entries of different types of media, including print, online, radio and television from various news and media outlets nationwide.
The awards also included seven second-place winners and 10 third-place.

It was the first time the Việt Nam Journalists’ Association co-operated with the Central Committee of the Việt Nam Fatherland Front to organise such a contest on a national scale.
The contest aims to emphasise the role of the press in the anti-corruption movement.

It was open to both professional and amateur Vietnamese journalists in Việt Nam and abroad. Each author or group of authors could submit a maximum of five works. The works had to be published in Vietnamese media between January 1 and November 30, 2017. 

The contest was held under the authorisation of General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng at a conference of the Việt Nam Fatherland Front Central Committee held in the southern city of Cần Thơ to
make plans to implement a Resolution reached at the fourth plenum of the Party Central Committee.

The resolution was aimed at building and reorganising the Party, thereby promoting the participation of the people and the whole society, including the pioneering role of press in the fight against
corruption and wastefulness.

At the awards ceremony held yesterday in Hà Nội, the Standing Committee of the Việt Nam Fatherland Front and the Việt Nam Journalists Association formally launched the 2018-19 round of the
"Press Prize for the fight against corruption and wastefulness". — VNS
