HÀ NỘI — An exhibition entitled Hà Nội Impressions is displaying photos of beautiful landscapes and the tempo of development in the capital.

They portray the daily life of Hanoians, new constructions that reflect the capital’s development and cultural activities.

The photos were entries in a contest organised by the Việt Nam Association of Photographic Artists. It’s a part of an annual photo festival organised in eight regions of the country, comprising Hà Nội, the Red River Delta, the northern mountainous region, and the northern central region, as well as the Central Highlands, the southern region, HCM City and the Mekong Delta.

The contest’s organising board received more than 1,800 entries sent by 276 photographers from Hà Nội. Two silver medals, three bronze medals and five consolation prizes were awarded to the best entries. No photo met the criteria to receive the gold medal.

About 137 photos will be displayed till Sunday at the Exhibition House, 29 Hàng Bài Street, Hà Nội. — VNS
