HÀ NỘI —Amateur and professional photographers have been invited to submit photos for a heritage contest launched yesterday in Hà Nội.

With the title of Heritage Itinerary, the contest aims to feature the richness and diversity of Việt Nam’s cultural heritage and people. Participants can send their entries from March 1 to August 31.

Heritage Magazine is hosting the contest for the sixth time. It is seeking photos featuring the beauty of Việt Nam’s nature, culture and people, according to Lê Trường Giang, editor-in-chief of the magazine.

As entrants taking part in two categories, Photo Album and Cover Photo, the best photos will be published in the magazine.

As the magazine is run by Vietnam Airlines, this year photographers can also submit photos taken in countries the airline visits.

Winner: A photo Wave of Rice, Wave of Life taken by Phạm Đức Minh was the winner of the previous contest.

The jury board includes Vũ Quốc Khánh, chairman of the Việt Nam Association of Photographic Artists (VAPA); Vi Kiến Thành, head of the Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition; Nguyễn Thái Thiên, vice chairman of the Authority of Press (Ministry of Information and Communications); Đinh Thị Cẩm Ly, editor of the Vietnam Heritage Magazine; and Nguyễn Việt Thanh, Việt Nam News photojournalist.

“We encourage young photographers to discover new angles,” Thanh said. “We also welcome participants in the Photo Album category (10-15 photos) because we believe it requires much creativity, effort and intelligence.”  

Photo tours will be organised to the north-eastern region, the southern border region bounded by Laos and the south-western region with support from Ford Việt Nam and Leica Boutique.

Leica Boutique will co-operate with the organising board to organise photo workshops during the contest. — VNS
