A teenage girl from the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh who has been living in Ho Chi Minh City for less than one year has won a design contest with a drawing of cyclo carrying all Saigon uniqueness.

Võ Thị Minh Châu won top prize of the “Vietnam - Where I live” competition, organized by the Hanoi-based London College for Design and Fashion.

Her award-winning drawing is entitled “Sai Gon le la” (or Wandering in Saigon).

In the drawing, Chau puts as many possible things that make a distinguished Saigon onto a cyclo. Those things range from popular landmarks like the Notre-Dame Cathedral and Ben Thanh Market to the city’s famous street foods such as banh mi, iced milky coffee and fetal duck eggs.

The awards ceremony also honored Hoang Phuong Thao as first runner-up for her work “Dak Lak’s identity”, and Nguyen Nhat Anh as second runner-up for a work on Hanoi.-VNA
