AsemconnectVietnam - The Vietnam Environment Administration under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment on December 19 honoured winners of the environmental photography contest, which was held under the patronage of the Vietnam Photographers Association.
The competition, themed “Desire of nature”, received more than 2,600 entries from contestants across the country.
A photo by Nguyen Thanh Hai from central Ha Tinh province, namely “Tea hills”, won the first prize. The jury also presented two second, three third and eight consolation prizes while five others were voted as favourite works.
The winning photos are truly meaningful works which do not only reflect the current pollution in Vietnam but also depicting some beautiful moments of life, outstanding people who have strived to protect the environment and solutions for waste recycling, said Pham Tien Dung, a representative of the jury.
They have helped raise public awareness of the significance of environmental protection, he added.
