HCM CITY — Thirty-four award-winning paintings featuring the life and career of Cuban revolutionary leader Che Guevara were presented at a meeting celebrating the 59th anniversary of Cuba’s National Day (January 6, 1959-2018) in HCM City.

The event was one of the city’s many activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Guevara’s death (October 9, 1967-2017).

The painting competition, which began in November last year, was organised by the HCM City Union of Friendship Organisation and the HCM City’s Cuba-Việt Nam Friendship Association in collaboration with the HCM City Youth Cultural House and the HCM City University of Fine Arts.

Winners are students at primary school, junior high school and universities. They won three first prizes, six second prizes, six third prizes and 19 consolation prizes.

The president of HCM City’s Cuba-Việt Nam Friendship Association, Trương Thị Hiền, said the painting competition paid tribute to the guerilla hero and demonstrated the affection of the Vietnamese for the Cuban revolutionary leader.

Relations between Việt Nam and Cuba were fostered by the late president Hồ Chí Minh and Fidel Castro.

The artworks are expected to be displayed later at the city’s Youth Cultural House, but the date has not been set.  — VNS
