The entries must belong to the categories of realism and thought, and should be taken in 2019 and 2020. They can be sent to the organising board from now until the end of June 30 as single photos or photo groups.
Each photographer can submit a maximum of 10 single photos or five photo sets, which have yet to be displayed or win prizes at any national and international contests held by the ministry and the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists.
The biennial event aims to introduce to the public, both locally and internationally, outstanding works of Vietnamese photographers.
