HÀ NỘI — A ceremony was held in Hà Nội yesterday to honour the winners of the third Golden Hammer and Sickle Press Award for their excellent works on Party building.
The award aims to recognise outstanding works in disseminating information and promoting understanding about the Party’s policies and Party building work.
The jury selected 56 outstanding works from more than 1,800 entries to present four A-level prizes, 10 B prizes, 15 C prizes and 25 consolation prizes.
Addressing the event, National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân said the award not only encourages reporters and news agencies to disseminate information and promote understanding about the Party’s policies, but also serves as an opportunity to review Party building tasks over the past year.
The award drew the participation of people from all walks of life, both at home and abroad, showing the increasing attention of the public to the Party’s activities, she said.
The entries reflected Party building tasks over the past year. Many entries reported on the fight against deterioration in political ideology, morality and lifestyle among a portion of Party members and against corruption and wastefulness.
They also covered the renewal and restructuring of the political apparatus and training of qualified officials of different levels.
Many models of good practice and good Party members were also reported.
The top legislator said these entries played a role in Party building and helped to fight wrongful and distorted allegations by hostile forces, contributing to strengthening trust in the Party among people, State cadres and Party members.
The award also shows the hard work of reporters and editors, she said.
She took the occasion to praise the contribution of the press towards the cause of national construction in general and in Party building in particular. — VNS
