NDO—An exhibition displaying the top 100 entries selected from the Vietnam Heritage photo competition opened in the city of Phan Thiet in Binh Thuan on October 23.

The exhibits are arranged in two categories, separating single photos from photo sets, and focus on five main topics: Vietnam’s nature, its tangible cultural heritage, its intangible cultural heritage, its people’s daily lives and and its rivers.

The contest has been held annually since 2012 by the Vietnam Heritage Magazine of the Vietnam Cultural Heritage Association.

The special theme of this year’s contest, which attracted 5,446 entries from 507 photographers, including fourteen foreigners, is “Vietnamese Rivers.”

Through the lenses of the contestants, the entries reflect the poetic natural beauty of Vietnam’s rivers and the robust activities taking place on them, as well as the lives of people living along rivers across Vietnam.

After the display concludes on October 28, the photos will be then put on display in Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang, Da Nang and Hanoi.

The winners will be be announced at an award ceremony on November 23 in Ho Chi Minh City to celebrate Vietnam Heritage Day, with sixteen prizes worth VND200 million (US$9,000) to be presented.
