HÀ NỘI — Sixteen posters for the Việt Nam's ASEAN Chairmanship Year 2020 were selected as the best at a contest held by Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism recently.
The contest was launched in January with the aim of raising public awareness of ASEAN and the year in which Việt Nam takes over the role of ASEAN Chair.
In a short time, the organisation board received hundreds of entries that highlight the theme of Asean - Cohesive and Responsive and the image of a peaceful, stable, safe and friendly bloc along with the socio-economic achievements of the country in the international integration process.
The ministry's Cultural Department will print posters and produce CDs to encourage people to uphold their culture with international friends as well as promote the image of the land and people of Việt Nam.
The second prize winners will be awarded VNĐ8 million (roughly US$350) each and the third prize will receive VNĐ5 million. One group award goes to Hà Nội Information and Exhibition Centre with a cash prize of VNĐ8million. — VNS
