The top winner of the competition in Vietnam will get a cash prize worth 500 million VND (21,300 USD) and a chance to compete in the regional round.

The program identity design for this year contest was inspired by the last year’s winning work, “Dystopia” by Thai artist Chomrawi Suksom.

The winning works of the national round will be announced and displayed at an exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City in October.

Submissions are open from May 9 to August 6.
