The Vietnam Art Photo Contest - an important event in photography circles is held every two years to gather the composing force, introduce excellent works to the public and evaluate achievements in Vietnam’s photography world. 

More than four months since its launch, the organising board had received 12,480 works by 1,516 photographers from 63 provinces and cities nationwide. The Art Council selected 238 works from 182 photographers in order to then exhibit and honour 33 excellent works, including three gold medals for the photos "Continuous Development" by Pham Huynh Anh Dung, "Stay at home to avoid epidemic" by Le Tue and the photo series "Mission HVN68 "by Nong Viet Linh; as well as six silver medals, nine bronze medals and 15 consolation prizes for other works. 

Regarding the quality of the works, the Art Council said that most of the works reflect a true, diverse, deep and vivid perspective on various issues of contemporary life. The entries feature the Vietnamese spirit and culture through the fusion of traditional beauty with modernity, full of aspiration and constantly evolving. This is also the first time that this type of conceptual photo has been displayed in the national art photo exhibition.

Nong Viet Linh (from Hanoi), who won the gold medal in the category of realistic photo with his work named "Mission HVN68", is a new name in the photography world. 

A single photo named "Constantly evolving" triumphed in the category of realistic photos by Huynh Pham Anh Dung (from Ho Chi Minh City),capturing the beauty of new buildings with impressive composition and night exposure. He is also a well-known photographer who has won many awards. 

Along with the contest, the Vietnam Art Photo Exhibition 2020 has attracted photographers and art lovers.

Photographer Tran Minh Luong from Can Tho won the consolation prize with the work "Flower Boat in Hoi An"..
