Serene: The award-winning photo Cam Xuc Ha Noi (Ha Noi Emotions) was taken by Nguyen Xuan Chinh.
HA NOI — Different views of Ha Noi can be seen through more than 100 images at the Artistic Photo Festival exhibition which opened in the capital yesterday.
An award ceremony also took place.
Organisers, the Viet Nam and Ha Noi Artistic Photographers' Association, received 746 entries from 138 photographers in Ha Noi.
The exhibition displays 126 of the best photos of which 12 were awarded.
With the theme of Ha Noi: renewal, development and integration, the photos highlight natural beauty, historical vestiges, cultural heritage and human's activities.
"The photos reflect many aspects of day-to-day city life through the photographers' precise eyes and their love for Ha Noi as well," said Dang Dinh An, president of the Ha Noi Artistic Photographers' Association.
"The festival was joined by many veteran photographers," he said. "Despite old age, they're still painstaking in creating and showing moments with young and fresh views.
"Meanwhile, young artists express their talent and energy through lively angles. Their photos are of good quality and many win prizes."
The exhibition at 45 Trang Tien Street will run until next Friday. — VNS
