Launched in July 2020, the photo contest opened with six categories of awards: inclusive education, climate change and environment, gender equality, good health and healthy life, decent work, and youth engagement for meaningful activities.

Visitors at the exhibition

After one month, nearly 1,000 entries were submitted to the organizing panel.

Among them, 49 outstanding photos are now on display at the Vietnam Women’s Museum.

At the opening ceremony, the organizing panel announced and awarded prizes to authors of the four best photos.

The first prize went to Photographer Nguyen Thanh Cuong, the second to Photographer Ho Anh Tien, the third to Pham Quoc Hung and the fourth to Nguyen Trung Hieu.

Speaking at the ceremony, U.N. Resident Coordinator in Vietnam Kamal Malhotra said that the winning photos were carefully selected to feature a dream-future of an old couple, hard-working workers and students, a happy family, and so on.

He also hoped that the photo exhibition would inspire young generations to make their dreams about a better society come true.

The photo exhibition will last until October 22.
