On September 15, The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MoCST) cooperated with the Vietnam Advertising Association and Vinama Communications JSC to organise the Vietnam Creative Advertisement competition to honour creative Vietnamese adverts.
According to the organising board, it is the first professional-scale programme to honour creative media advertisers in Vietnam. The event was held to implement a project building and promoting national brands in 2020-2030 and boost the development of the advertising industry.
The awards aim to highlight the role and continuous growth of the advertising industry in the country’s socioeconomic development, creating better conditions to promote the development of creative advertising.
According to the chairman of the Vietnam Advertisement Association Nguyen Truong Son, advertising is one of 12 key cultural economic sectors in the strategy to develop cultural industries. Developing the advertising industry contributes to paving the way for Vietnam to bring indigenous cultural images to friends worldwide and affirms Vietnam’s creative power globally.
This year, along with the traditional advertising awards awarded by the MoCST, this year, the organising committee has built a new and more groundbreaking award portfolio worth VND500 million ($21,000) thanks to the participation of the Vietnam Advertising Association and Vinama Communications JSC.

Meanwhile, the organising board will award the biggest prize of $10,000 to the most special work.
The organising board will receive works between September 20 to November 20. The awards presentation ceremony will be held in Hanoi in December 2023.
