Danang FantastiCity contest opens for entries

Da Nang, July 6 (VNA) – The Da Nang Tourism Department and Coco Bay resort have launched the Danang FantastiCity, a competition that offers both domestic and international players a chance to experience the central coastal city. 

Lasting for two months, the contest has two rounds. 

The first round runs between July 5 and August 15 and calls for submissions of photos taken during trips to Da Nang. Participants are required to create an account on the contest’s official website –, then uploading 10 to 15 photos of their personal travel experiences in the city with a 250-word maximum description. 

Nine candidates selected from round one will take part in round two from August 31 to September 27, which includes a sponsored 4-day 3-night trip in Da Nang. 

The participants will be randomly divided into 3 teams for updates on their activities and to tackle challenges. Members of a judging panel will take turns to accompany each team to enjoy the city, helping them take photos, write blogs and make video clips. 

When the trip ends, each team must summarise their journey by creating a video clip of less than five minutes, a photo series of less than 50 pictures and writing a personal reflection of no more than 1,000 words. 

The winner is set to pocket a prize worth 100 million VND (4,398 USD), while the most impressive and favourite groups will go home with 30 million and 20 million VND (1,319 and 879.9 USD) of cash and gifts, respectively.
