The Ministry of Information and Communications on December 24 launched a logo design contest for digital television in Vietnam.

The winning design will be used as the official logo for television promotion activities both inside and outside the country within the framework of a project on the digitalisation of terrestrial television broadcasting and transmission between now and 2020.

Deputy Minister Le Nam Thang said the project, approved by the Prime Minister in 2011, aims to expand the coverage of the digital terrestrial television, provide high-quality television services, develop the broadcasting and transmission market, and facilitate the reorganisation and restructuring of radio and television stations in a professional way.

All Vietnamese at home and abroad can take part in the contest, which will last until January 23.

Entries can be sent to the Organising Board, the Information Centre under the Ministry of Information and Communications, 18 Nguyen Du Str., Hanoi.-VNA
