The contest was kick started in March, as part of the activities to commemorate International Women’s Day 2018. It was organized by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), with the support of the Embassies of Australia and Canada to Vietnam.

The contest provides a platform for Vietnamese society to capture the positive changes they want to see regarding empowering rural women, covering multiple areas, such as the role of rural women in sustainable agriculture, responding to disaster/climate change, business and/or cooperatives, rural women in leadership and decision making, and gender equality between rural women and men.

In the preliminary round, UN Women uploaded 40 photos on its Facebook Page. The participant with most likes on Facebook will be rewarded with the People’s Choice Award. In the final round, the Judging Panel selects 30 photos for all awards.

The awarding ceremony of the contest will be held at 2 pm, October 10, at the Vietnamese Women's Museum, 36 Ly Thuong Kiet, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi.

Admission to the photo exhibition is FREE from October 10 to 11./.
