HÀ NỘI — Cao Lãnh Bridge in the southern province of Đồng Tháp is the theme of a photo competition launched by the Australian Embassy in Việt Nam on Wednesday.
The competition is open to everyone who wants to share snaps of the bridge and highlight the positive impact of the bridge on the Mekong Delta.
Cao Lãnh Bridge was built by Australia’s largest single development aid investment in mainland Southeast Asia.
Contestants can submit up to three photos related to the Cao Lãnh Bridge.
The photos can be of the bridge itself or capture the impact the bridge has had on the region.
“Cao Lãnh Bridge is a crucial driver for development for the Mekong Delta region and an enduring symbol of the friendship between Australia and Việt Nam,’ said Australian Ambassador Craig Chittick.
“I hope this competition will be an opportunity for all participants to tell their stories about the bridge and show their talent and creativity.”
Since its opening in May 2018, Cao Lãnh Bridge has helped reduce travel time in the delta, opening up new trade opportunities for Vietnamese agricultural products, promoting private investment, supporting food security and improving access of local people to social and health services.
The competition winner will receive a Canon EOS 80D camera valued at VNĐ25,000,000 (US$1,000) and the second and third prizes are an iPad 2018, valued at VNĐ9,000,000, and a shopping voucher valued at VNĐ5,000,000, respectively.
The most liked photo on Australia in Vietnam Facebook page will also receive a shopping voucher valued at VNĐ5,000,000.
Five honourary mentions will each receive a set of IELTS English language books, a kangaroo-designed helmet and a certificate of appreciation.
The competition winners will be announced in the last week of May on the Facebook page. — VNS
