The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Viet Nam is calling for entries from the Philippines to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN, 1967-2017).

Theme of the photo competition is “ASEAN people and countries”, and Philippine photographers are asked to submit photos that depict the culture, people, and landscapes of the Philippines. Other ASEAN photographers are also submitting photos from their own countries.

There will be ten (10) winners, each receiving 20-million Vietnamese Dong, equivalent to about US$ 885, or PHP 43,000. In addition to the cash prizes each winner will also be entitled to an all-expense paid trip which include round trip tickets, meals, accommodation and travel for 3 days to Hanoi, Vietnam to receive the awards.

Deadline for submission of entries is on June 10, 2017. The photo exhibit is tentatively scheduled for August 2017.
