With the theme "I Love Vietnam", the contest opened in January with organisation by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) and the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists (VAPA).

The contest aims to introduce Vietnamese culture and people to foreigners, raising awareness of tourism and attracting more visitors to Vietnam. The contest is one of the means of promoting domestic tourism and turning tourism into a spearhead economic sector, according to Nguyen Thi Thanh Huong, vice chairwoman of the VNAT.

The contest was launched for the first time in 1990. This year, the eighth edition of its kind received entries from nearly 1,000 professional and amateur photographers who are Vietnamese citizens at home and abroad, as well as foreigners living and working in Vietnam.

“They capture the beauty of the land and the people of Vietnam from creative angles,” she said.

“The contest provides a plentiful source of beautiful photos for promoting national tourism. I’m sure that they will urge tourists to discover the country’s beautiful landscapes, diversified culture, festivals and people.”

The exhibition of 180 photos will run until July 11 at the National Museum of History, 1 Pham Ngu Lao Street, Hanoi./.
