Contestants and delegates at the award ceremony.

The first prize was presented to Vu Le Minh Anh and Le Huynh Kieu Nga from HCM City for their reportage titled “Réseaux sociaux ennemis des femmes?” (Social networks – enemy of women), which explores the negative impacts on Vietnamese women through social networks, particularly Facebook.

The second prize went to Vu Ha Trang and Doan Tra My for their work “Vieux dortoirs à Hanoi – un patrimoine méconnu” (Old condos in Hanoi – forgotten legacy).

The organisers also presented a third prize, three encouragement prizes, a People’s Choice award, an Impressive Contestant, and a Dynamic Contestant.

Entitled The Power of Words, the contest aims to encourage young people to use the beauty and richness of the French language to write about the country.

The contest attracted attention from young writers, particularly university students learning French throughout the country.

Addressing the ceremony, Deputy Director General of the Vietnam News Agency Le Quoc Minh affirmed that the VNA supports the development of the French language in Vietnam, noting the contest contributed to enhancing the unity of Francophone partners in Vietnam.

Editor-in-chief of Le Courrier du Vietnam, Nguyen Thu Ha, who is a co-organiser of the event, said this year, the number of candidates increased significantly, and the quality of the works was also better than previous years.

The fourth contest’s results met all its targets of promoting the movement of teaching and learning French in Vietnam, and especially, it creates a playground for young people studying French, said Ha.
