Poster contest honouring August Revolution launched

A poster contest to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the August Revolution (August 19) and National Day (September 2) is now open for entries.

Launched by the Department of Grassroots Culture under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the contest aims to promote citizens’ understanding of the context, process and causes of the victory and lessons drawn from the August Revolution and the birth of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam), in addition to affirming their historical significance.

It is also expected to raise awareness about the creative application of such lessons in the struggle for national unification, particularly in national renewal and international integration.

In terms of topics, the entries should feature the great achievements of the Vietnamese Party and people over 75 years of building, defending and developing the nation.

The contest is open to all professional or amateur painters, Vietnamese citizens and overseas Vietnamese. Each contestant can submit more than one work, which must be painted recently and been neither submitted to other competition nor disseminated in any form.

The organisers will judge and present prizes for outstanding works, including one first prize, two second prizes, three third prizes, 10 consolation prizes and one special prize for organisations.

In addition to the winning posters, the organising committee will select a number of good works to display at an exhibition and use them for festivals, anniversaries or for appropriate political duties nationwide.

The contest will close for submissions on June 22, 2020. Its closing and award ceremonies are scheduled to take place in September 2020.

The organising committee will present one first, two second, three third, and 10 consolation prizes. One movement prize will also be bestowed on the unit with the most participants and high-quality works./
