Eighty outstanding literary pieces and artwork on revolution and resistance wars for national liberation from 1930-1975 were honoured in Hanoi on August 18. 

They were selected from a contest launched by the Vietnam Union of Literature and Arts Associations from January 2013 to June 2014. 

From more than 1,400 entries, the organising board chose three first prizes for literature, theatre and dancing. 

Poet Huu Thinh, Chairman of the National Committee of the Vietnam Union of Literature and Arts Associations, said scores of the entries reminisced on historical events during the two resistance wars against French and US forces.-VNA
