Photo contest launched to capture green Hanoi

A photo and video contest has been launched by the Vietnam News Agency's The Thao & Van Hoa (Culture & Sports) daily to give photographers a chance to capture the beauty of Hanoi.

The contest themed Ha Noi Mat Xanh (Green Hanoi) is held to promote the traditional and modern beauty of Hanoi: 'The River and Lake City'. It will inspire Vietnamese and foreign professional and amateur photographers to explore the natural beauty of the capital.

"Hanoi is strangely beautiful amid social distancing," said Le Xuan Thanh, the daily's Editor-in-Chief at the contest launch ceremony. "The streets are so quiet with almost no people, making a strange peace."

The number of photos and videos will not be limited for each entrant who will take photos reflecting the current tree and lake situation in Hanoi.

The photographers are encouraged to take pictures of the clean and green environment in Hanoi, the organiser said, adding it welcomes pictures focusing on areas in Hanoi lacking trees.

Each entrant can submit photos to the contest through the organisation email hanoimatxanh@thethaovanhoa.vn or by post to 11 Tran Hung Dao street by July 15, 2022.

Photos must have the time and place of shooting. Photos with short captions or essays are qualified.

Entrants are not allowed to use Photoshop to change the content and nature of their pictures. Clips have a maximum length of ten minutes and the ones with comments will get priority.

The jury panel includes established photographers Duong Minh Long and historian Duong Trung Quoc.

Winning works will be displayed in October, 2022./.
