An exhibition displaying the photos of winners in the 2018 Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards is being held from October 25 to 31 in Hanoi.

The winners of the 2018 Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards were honored at an awards ceremony in the capital on October 25 to open the exhibition at Exhibition House, 29 Hang Bai Street, Hoan Kiem district.

The exhibition showcases nine collections and ten covers, as well as 30 photos created during three photo tours within the framework of the 2018 contest.

The photo “Huong Tet” (Traditional New Year Festival’s Flavor) by Le Viet Khanh and the photo series “Le Wa Ha” (Wa Ha Festival) by Hoang Thach Van won special prizes in the cover photo and collection photo categories, respectively.

With a fully-constructed layout, “Huong Tet” highlights the traditional features of Tet (lunar new year) in Vietnam, while “Le Wa Ha” reproduces a traditional festival of the Cham Bani people in the south-central region.

This year’s contest attracted 194 photo collections, including nearly 3,000 photos and 532 single cover photos. In addition to professional photographers from media and news offices and the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists, more freelancers participated this year, bringing new and interesting shots, according to organizers.

The Vietnam Heritage Photo Contest was held by the Cultural Heritage Association of Vietnam in August. Organized annually since 2012, the contest aims to introduce images of Vietnam to the international community and raise public awareness about maintaining and preserving the country’s cultural and natural heritages.

In addition to traditional themes such as nature, culture, and lifestyle, there are two new themes: Ao Dai (traditional Vietnamese long dress) and travel experiences in Vietnam. The contest was open to both Vietnamese citizens and foreigners capturing the beauty of Vietnam.
