Organisers encourage members to send meaningful entries like vivid images covering the battle against the pandemic and all people joining the process.

Each photographer can send up to 20 works (single, groups of photos or photo essays of 5-8 photos). Photos can be black and white or colour. Entries should be in JPG format of at least 3,000 pixels in length, and 300dpi in resolution.

Entries should include captions while photographers are responsible for copyright of the entries they submit.

Entries should be sent to website till May 20, 2020. The jury will choose 150-200 finalists for an exhibition planned to be held on June 1, 2020 in Hanoi.

“The exhibition aims to praise photographers with good photos taken during the pandemic to further enhance people’s awareness on the issue as well as people’s responsibility in fighting the disease,” said Vu Quoc Khanh, chairman of the association. “The exhibition also confirms Vietnam’s victory in the process."

Entries should be taken in journalistic realism style during the pandemic in Vietnam, he said.

The exhibition is planned to take place at the Archive and Artistic Photo Centre of the association in No 4, Ton That Thuyet Street, Cau Giay District, Hanoi.
