Ho Quang Loi, Vice President of the Vietnam Journalists’ Association, said many of the submissions reflected hot issues which drew attention from the public.

He said most of shortlist showed good social impacts, winning high appreciation from the public, showing the role of the press in investigations, and giving praise and constructive criticism.

While acknowledging progress in term of quality, there is still room for improvement, he said.

Many of entries lacked of creativity and there was a still shortage of deep editorial articles and photographs.
