Photo contest on gender equality launched
The Embassy of Sweden in Vietnam and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism have launched a national photo contest searching for families with good examples of gender equality. It aims to acknowledge and emphasise the importance of shared responsibility in family and domestic life to increase gender equality in Vietnamese society.
Closing on 15 May, 30 of the best photos will be selected for an exhibition. A winner and runner-up will be chosen by a jury and judging panel and the third prize will be based on votes on the embassy’s Facebook page. First place will receive VND10 million ($440), second place VND8 million ($350), and third place VND7 million ($300). Applicants can send photos directly to the embassy by post or email.
