QUANG NINH (VNS) — The Ha Long Bay Management Board has launched a contest to mark the 20th anniversary of the UNESCO's recognition of the Ha Long Bay as a World Natural Heritage site.
That recognition was granted on December 17, 1994.
The contest seeks souvenir items which not only have good design, but also represent the specific identity as well as beauty of the spot.
The contest's organisers said they would welcome all materials that will be used to make the souvenir entries, but the fact is that those made with environment friendly or locally available materials would be preferred.
The entries can be sent by September 10 and the result will be announced on October 14. There are two VND15-million or US$700 first prizes, two VND10-million or $470 second prizes, and two VND5-million or $240 third prizes.
The winning entries will be displayed at the Quang Ninh Provincial Museum.
