Update: Dec 12, 2013
Hue City is hosting an emotive photo exhibition, showcasing selected images from the 2013 Vietnamese Heritage photo competition.

The exhibition, which opened on December 11, was organised as part of the second Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards launched by Vietnam Heritage Magazine and the Vietnam Cultural Heritage’s Association on June 2013.

So far, the competition has received a phenomenal 6,016 submissions from 339 entrants nationwide, featuring natural and cultural heritage such as architecture, sculpture, handicrafts, traditional villages, music, dances, festivals, folk games and religion.

The event provides the opportunity for photographers to express their national pride by capturing the natural beauty of the landscape and Vietnamese culture. Some of the notable works include Bien va con nguoi (Sea and human) by Nguyen Xuan Huu Tam, Hue City, and Di cho ve (Back to home from market) by Nguyen Van Dong.

Le Thanh Hai, Vietnam Heritage Magazine Editor-in-chief, affirmed many of the excellent photographs will be shared with domestic and foreign readers, contributing to honouring the values of Vietnamese life and culture.

Canon, one of the major sponsors, has published nearly 1,000 large images to be displayed at exhibitions in 16 provinces and cities across the country.
