Deputy head of the Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ma The Anh said the contest is open to Vietnamese people over 18 years old living in and outside the country are eligible to enter the biennial national art photography contest .
Both amateur and professional photographers are encouraged to send entries to compete in two categories: reality photography and idea photography.
The entries must belong to the categories of realism and thought, and should be taken in 2019 and 2020. They can be sent to the organising board from now until the end of June 30 as single photos or photo groups.
Each photographer can submit a maximum of 10 single photos or five photo sets, which have yet to be displayed or win prizes at any national and international contests held by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists.
The biennial event aims to introduce to the public, both locally and internationally, outstanding works of Vietnamese photographers.
