These photos are the winners of the “Resilient Vietnam” photo contest organised by the Vietnam Public Relations Network (VNPR) with the aim of capturing the resilience of Vietnamese people in the fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
They were selected from approximately 1,000 entries by 350 professional photographers from across the country.
In total, six photographers were awarded in two categories, including professional photos and mobile phone photos. In addition, the “Inspirer” award was presented to photographer Nguyen A from Ho Chi Minh City.
The competition is being held to promote photography arts and utilise photography to tell stories about Vietnam during its fight against COVID-19. It is hoped that the contest does this in a lively way that is both full of respect and gratitude, Nguyen Khoa My, president of the Vietnam Public Relations Network, told an awards ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City.
