They were selected from more than 180 entries sent to the organising board in five categories of construction planning projects, completed projects, publications on planning, urban development management, and urban environmental quality.

According to President of the Vietnam Urban Planning and Development Association (VUPDA) Tran Ngoc Chinh, the awarded projects proposed creative planning ideas and solutions with the aim of providing a good living space for the community while preserving traditional values and protecting the natural environment.
