The Heritage Photographic Contest – Journeys of Heritage 2019 will officially commence in late February 2019. The contest runs for six months and involves a wide range of activities.

In tandem with the evolution of photojournalism nationwide, Heritage, the magazine of the Vietnam Airlines Corporation – Vietnam Airlines, will host its 7th season of the Heritage Photographic Contest – Journeys of Heritage.

The 2019 Contest will officially open in late February 2019, and accept entries as of March 1. The contest will run for six consecutive months from March 1 to August 31, 2019. There will be one Final Round in September to select winning entries from the Top 3 entries shortlisted in the preliminary rounds.

Along with the two established contest categories of Cover Photo and Album, there will be a Single Photo category with a new theme - “Moments of Vietnam Airlines” - to enhance mutual understanding and interaction between photography fans and Vietnam Airlines. This category will even extend to high resolution entries taken with smartphones. 

The Photo Album category also has a new theme - “Traditional clothing of ethnic communities” - to enrich the photos of the Culture – Heritage features in the editorial board’s publications. Some photographic techniques such as underwater and macro photography have also been adopted as themes.

The good news for candidates is that the prize structure underwent many attractive changes that involve cash prizes, domestic and international bonus tickets on Vietnam Airlines.

Particularly, this year, the Jury will be extended to include up to eight judges, including more respected, professional photographic artists from throughout Vietnam. Mr. Vu Khanh, President of the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists, will serve as Chief Judge of the 2019 Photographic Contest.

In 2019, the Photo Tours, which are well loved and highly-anticipated field trips, will travel to Myanmar (in late April) and Vietnam's Central Highlands (in October). To sum up this Contest, an exhibition is planned for November to showcase all winning entries and select works from the photo tours. This is a tribute to all of the photographic artists, candidates, sponsors, and partners who have supported the Contest to cement its evolution and popularity.
