HÀ NỘI — The Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has launched a photo contest about Việt Nam for photographers.

The Việt Nam Qua Ống Kính Nhiếp Ảnh Gia Quốc Tế (Vietnam Through The Lens of Foreign Photographers) contest is part of the first Việt Nam International Photography Festival which is scheduled to take place later this year in the northern province of Ninh Bình, according to the organisers.

The event is open to Vietnamese and foreign amateur and professional artists to submit their works showcasing the beauty of the Vietnamese land and people.

All entries must be sent to the organising board’s email address before August 20. Each photographer is permitted to send a maximum of 20 photos. 

They should be sent in the form of digital image files, JPG format with size from 5Mb-12Mb and resolution 300dpi.

The photos can have been taken at any point in time, but those from the last three years are more encouraged, the organisers said.

Following the conclusion of the competition by the end of September, a total of 250 winning works will be displayed at an exhibition held in Ninh Bình Province in early November.

The Việt Nam International Photography Festival is set to place as part of a range of activities during the 2021 National Tourism Year in Ninh Bình and aims to develop the brand of Vietnamese photography. — VNS
