Some 100 outstanding photos selected in the fourth Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards are on display at a one-week exhibition, which opened in the central coastal city of Phan Thiet, Binh Thuan province, on October 22.

The photos were chosen from 4,740 entries in both single images and photo sets submitted to the fourth Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards organised annually by the Vietnam Heritage Magazine under the Vietnam Cultural Heritage Association.

The exhibition in Binh Thuan is the first in a series to be held across the country from now to the end of this year. The photos will be put on show in a foreign country early next year.

The contest has brought Vietnamese heritage closer to the public, helping popularise a Vietnam of hospitality and beauty among international friends while raising public awareness of promoting and preserving cultural and natural heritages.

On the same day, the organising board presented awards to six photo works on the theme “Binh Thuan Green Convergence”.-VNA
