Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards’ winners announced

The winners of the 2018 Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards were honoured at an awards ceremony held in Hanoi on October 25.

The photo ‘Huong Tet’ (Tet Flavour) by Le Viet Khanh and photo series ‘Le Wa Ha’ (Wa Ha Festival) by Hoang Thach Van won the special prizes for cover photo and collection photo categories, respectively.

With a fully constructed layout, the work ‘Huong Tet’ highlighted the traditional features of Vietnamese Tet (Lunar New Year Festival); meanwhile the series ‘Le Wa Ha’ reproduced a traditional festival of Cham Bani people in the South-Central region.

This year’s contest attracted 194 photo collections and 532 single cover photos.

The most outstanding works, including nine collections and ten covers, as well as 30 photos created during three photo tours under the framework of the 2018 contest, are being displayed at an exhibition from October 25 - 31.

The annual event aims to call on people to preserve and promote cultural and natural heritages in Vietnam, particularly world heritages.
