HCM City (VNA) – The sixth Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards contest was launched on July 10, calling for submissions from both amateur and professional photographers living in Vietnam and abroad.

The annual competition, co-organised by the Vietnam Heritage Magazine and the Canon Marketing Vietnam Limited Company, aims to honour the natural and cultural heritage values of Vietnam through photos, with the main topics of nature, tangible and intangible cultures, and market life.

Entries submitted to the contest can be either single images or photo sets. Each competitor is allowed to summit a maximum of four sets of photos and four single photos for each topic.

Photos should be sent to the organising board before September 15.

Some 100 excellent photos chosen from entries submitted to the contest will be exhibited online and introduced to people in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang city.

The winning photos will be announced in late November.
