The Vietnam Journalists Association on June 17 held a ceremony to announce the award-winning entries of a press photo competition to capture the beautiful and not so beautiful aspects of daily life.

The competition aims to reflect the beauty of the country and Vietnamese people in the process of national construction and defence.

The photo “hands create light” by journalist and photographer Nguyen Tat Loc topped the list of award-wining works.

Loc said all of his submitted photos are about work. Through the images, he wants to pay tribute to workers with high technicial skill and who comply with labour regulations.

Launched in March this year, the contest drew the participation of numerous journalists and photographers with many pieces reflecting all aspects of people’s lives nationwide, from images that reflect the good to others that critique bad manners and behaviours.

After the competition, 72 outstanding photos were selected to go on display to mark this year’s Vietnam Revolutionary Press Day.-VNA
