The digital painting themed ‘Ha Noi rong’ (Hanoi’s street vendors) by Dang Thai Tuan wins first prize at the “Ha Noi is…” Illustration Contest.

The contest aimed to promote Hanoi as a city of innovation, worthy of the title “Hanoi - Creative City” awarded by UNESCO in 2019.

With the evocative theme “Ha Noi is…”, young artists came up with unique and creative ideas integrated with personal touch to portray their own image of Hanoi. Hanoi Creative City was illustrated in digital paintings, silk painting, collage art, lacquer, and others.

The thirty best works were presented with prizes by the jury board including one first prize, four second prizes, a voting prize and 24 consolation prizes.

The illustration contest is part of the Hanoi Rethink project organised by UNESCO, UN-Habitat and UNIDO with the support of SOVICO Group with the goal to support Hanoi in realising its vision of Creative Capital in the field of design, exploring cultural heritage with the engagement of Vietnamese youth who is an essential element for innovation, creativity, and change.
