HÀ NỘI – Two propaganda poster contests have been launched by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in Hà Nội.
The contests aim to celebrate the 70th anniversary of President Hồ Chí Minh’s appeal for patriotic emulation and his communication on culture, sports and tourism.
The competition is an occasions to disseminate information on President Hồ Chí Minh’s appeal for patriotic emulation, strengthen national solidarity, defend border sovereignty and the country’s seas and islands.
This is also an opportunity to enhance all levels of government and public awareness over the protection of the environment, and to cope with climate change in the fields of culture, sports and tourism.
Anyone, bar the organising board, can enter the contest and the number of entries is unlimited.
All entries must be 54x79cm and new creations which have not been submitted to other contests before.
No entries will be returned, and the organising board can display the works for national communication activities in all forms, like festivals, anniversaries and political missions.
The deadline for all entries to be sent to the ministry is December 14 for the first contest and December 24 for the second.
The first prize for both contests is worth VNĐ15 million (US$660), and the authors will receive royalties if their works are displayed at any exhibition.
At the launching ceremony, the organising board gave awards for a previous contest, APEC Year in Việt Nam, to 20 finalists from 552 entries. The first prize was given to Đỗ Trung Kiên from Hà Nội. VNS
