HÀ NỘI — A campaign seeking ideas for Hà Nội's street decoration and lighting for this year has been launched by the municipal Department of Culture and Sports.
According to the organisers, the campaign aims to create a joyful and exciting atmosphere for citizens on national holidays and major anniversaries of the nation, in addition to aiding the political and decorative tasks of the city.
It is also set to contribute to preserving and promoting the national cultural identity and typical values of Hà Nội as a thousand-year-old capital, creative city and city for peace, as well as meet the increasing demands of cultural enjoyment of citizens.
Themed 'Hà Nội -- Creative City' and 'Hà Nội Congratulates the Party and Celebrates a New Spring', designs must be of high aesthetic, suitable to surrounding landscape, lightning systems and architecture. They are also expected to contain elements of creativity and follow modern decoration trends.
Entries with the use of new technologies, appropriate materials, elegant colours and safety insurance will be prioritised.
The winning designs will be used for decoration of major streets in Hà Nội’s downtown such as Tràng Tiền, Tràng Thi, Bà Triệu, Hai Bà Trưng, Lý Thường Kiệt and Trần Hưng Đạo, among others, at the celebration of the new year of 2022.
The contest is open for contestants of any nationality who can submit unlimited designing plans for various places, provided that they comply with copyright protection law.
The works qualified for the competition must be those which have not been submitted to other contests or introduced to the public in any form.
One special prize, one first prize, two-second prizes, third prizes and five consolation prizes will be given to the best entries.
The submitted designs for street decoration and lighting must be drawn on the A4-sized paper, and then sent to Hà Nội’s Department of Culture and Sports at 47 Hàng Đậu Street, Hoàn Kiếm District, Hà Nội, from August 24 to 31. VNS
