As many as 100 photos featuring natural and cultural heritage sites are being showcased at an exhibit that opened on November 2 in the central city of Da Nang.

They were chosen from thousands of entries in a photo contest, launched for the second year, to highlight national heritage as well as the landscapes and culture of the central province of Binh Thuan.

The event was jointly organised by the Vietnam Heritage Magazine under the Vietnamese Cultural Heritage Association and Canon.

Head of the jury board Hoang Trung Thuy hailed the diversity and quality of the entries from more than 500 artists both abroad and at home.

The contest helped popularise the peaceful landscapes of Vietnam while contributing to protecting the nation’s heritage.

The exhibition will run until November 7.-VNA
