The contest is open to all Vietnamese, overseas Vietnamese and foreigners. Submissions consist of a three-minute video clip and script about the landscape and people of Da Nang or about the city’s achievements and development.
Foreign contestants may submit their scripts in English with Vietnamese subtitles. The best video clip will be aired on the city’s television station.
The event’s organising committee will present cash prizes totalling 80 million VND (3,600 USD).
Da Nang was recognised as one of five central government cities in 1997 along with Ha Noi, HCM City, Hai Phong and Can Tho. It was designated a ‘First Class’ Vietnamese city in 2003.
The former capital of the then Quang Nam-Da Nang Province is expected to play a prominent role in ASEAN and Asia in the future.
The city will host the 2017 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation) Summit and the annual Da Nang International Fireworks Competition next year.
