Hanoi (VNA) - Ninety two outstanding works by journalists throughout the country, winners of the National Press Awards 2015, will be given prizes on the 91st Vietnamese Revolutionary Journalism Day (June 21).

It was announced by Deputy Chairman of the Vietnam Journalist Association, Ho Quang Loi, at a press conference held in Hanoi on June 14.

At the award ceremony, eight works will be granted the A prize, the highest prize achievable at the National Press Awards, 25 works the B prize and 40 others given the C prize.

Loi said the works covered various topics including economics, society, national defence and national sovereignty over seas and islands. The works vividly reported matters of culture as well as major issues facing the country, contributing to the cause of building and defending the nation.

There isn’t a big gap between the quality of press works at central and local levels, or between print media and broadcast news, he said.

However, the common weakness of these works was a lack depth and a failure to reach the heart of the matter, he said.

Organised by the Vietnam Journalist Association, the annual National Press Awards this year attracted 1,660 entries from 169 organisations and individuals.-VNA
