Hanoi’s vitality captured on photos

Eighty-five photos at the Hanoi museum are showing visitors Hanoi and its people in their daily life. 
 
These photos were selected from about 2,000 candidates taken by photographers and members of the Press Photo Club under the Việt Nam Journalists’ Association (VJA), reflecting the true, rich and multifaceted life of the people in the capital, and showcased the vitality of the city. 
 
The exhibition themed Ha Noi trai tim hong (Hanoi-the heart of the country) was opened on March 16 and formed part of the ongoing three-day National Press Festival held in the city. 
 
Nguyen The Dung, chairman of the Press Photo Club, said in the five month-long photo contest for the exhibition, the organisers received about 1,216 single photos and four groups of photos by hundreds of members to apply for the contest. 
 
Most of the photographs submitted to this year’s exhibition were relatively high quality, focusing on Hanoi on the way of renewal and development, according to the organising board. 
 
The first prize was awarded to a photo Ha Noi tren duong phat trien (Hanoi on the way to development) by Duong Hong Mai. Two second prizes were bestowed on two photos by Pham Van Hoc and Le Huy Long.-VNA/VNP
