The competition is open to people aged 16 years old and older, introducing them to 'dubbing' in the film industry.

The participants will have the chance to learn the knowledge, skills and experiences required for dubbing, mixing or re-recording – a post-production process used in filmmaking and video production that is provided by both Vietnamese and foreign voiceover experts. 

The winner and finalists will receive a free three-month training course thanks to the organisers, Netflix and BHD – a leading Vietnamese film studio, distributor and cinema owner.

Successful contestants will also have the opportunity to work on new film projects by the organisers. 

A group of skilled Vietnamese and foreign voiceover artists and film producers make up the panel of judges.  

“Through the Thanh Âm Kỳ Diệu contest, amateurs and professionals will have a chance to explore their creativity in dubbing and develop their careers,” said Nguyễn Thị Thu Hà, deputy head of the Việt Nam Department of Cinematography. 

“The event will also help audiences discover and improve their knowledge about the film industry.” — VNS
