Photo World magazine has launched photographic competition “Vietnam Today”, the first of its kind.
Sponsored by Kodak, Vietnam’s Association of Photographic Artists (VAPA) and Vietnam’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI, the competition is open to both professional and amateur photographers, including overseas Vietnamese and foreigners living in Vietnam.
Contestants are invited to submit black-and-white or colour photos, in traditional or digital format, either as singles (without limitation in quantity) or thematic sets of 6-10 photos. As the contest is partially funded by Kodak all photos must be developed on Kodak paper, ranging in size from 25x38cm to 30x45cm.
First prize includes VND15mil, a Kodak digital cameral worth $579 and a gold medal. In addition, the organizers have arranged for three ‘people’s choice’ prizes. Votes can be made through www.saigonnews.vn. Participants whose photos are displayed will also be considered for membership with Vietnam’s Association of Photographic Artists.
Photos can be sent to 9 Dao Duy Anh, Dong Da District, Hanoi; 171 Vo Thi Sau, District 3, HCM City; or 46 Pham Van Nghi, Da Nang. Entries close February 28, 2006.
