The winning works were selected from about 1,000 entries by 350 professional photographers from across the country.

Six photographers were awarded in two categories – professional photos and mobile phone photos – while one “Inspirer” award was presented to photographer Nguyen A from Ho Chi Minh City.

The competition promotes photography arts and more importantly, uses photography to tell stories about Vietnam in the time of COVID-19 in a very lively way and full of respect and gratitude, VNPR President Nguyen Khoa My told the award ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City.

Exhibition of the winning works is underway at the HCM City’s Youth Culture Centre until October 11. They will also be displayed on the big screen in Times Squares, the US’s New York City./.
