HA NOI (VNS) — A contest with the theme of discovering New Zealand was launched in Ha Noi yesterday.
The tourism-themed contest – New Zealand, New Horizon – is being jointly organised by New Zealand embassy and the online newspaper Vnexpress. The contest's participants are being asked to express their perception of New Zealand in the most creative way possible.
The participants can write on various topics focusing on the people, culture, landscape and food that impress them the most. The entries can be in the form of written submissions, photos or videos and will be uploaded onto the Vnexpress website.
The top prize for the three-week nationwide contest is an all-expenses paid trip for two to New Zealand. The New Zealand embassy will offer additional prizes to some entries posted on the embassy's Facebook page, including those which receive the most ‘likes' or ‘shares'.
The embassy also announced that Jennifer Pham would be its Honorary Tourism Envoy in Viet Nam for 2014. Pham will travel to New Zealand in June to get a tourist experience and will share her stories with the Vietnamese audience. — VNS
