Hanoi (VNA) – All Vietnamese primary pupils can paint their dreams and send their works to a painting contest launched by the Embassy of Denmark in Vietnam in Hanoi on August 25.

The initiative is part of the annual cultural exchange themed “Denmark in our eyes” which aims to promote the Vietnam – Denmark diplomatic ties.

Addressing the ceremony, Deputy Ambassador to Vietnam Christian Brix Moller said over the past ten years, Denmark has supported student-centred art teaching at primary schools in Vietnam.

How the new teaching method inspires creativity among children will be seen through the contest, he said.

According to Cultural Counsellor of the embassy Ane Kirsten Andersen, the event presents an opportunity for primary students to develop their creativity and imagination while contributing to enhancing the friendship and cultural understanding between the two countries’ people, especially young generations.

Candidates can send their entries to the Vietnam – Denmark Friendship Association at 105 A Quan Thanh street, Ba Dinh district, Hanoi from August 25 to October 6.

The award ceremony will be held in November. A special prize winner will receive a Canon camera and a lego kit.-VNA
