Winning photos from Heritage Magazine's annual photography contest “Journey of Heritages 2015” was displayed in Hanoi this December

Winning photos from Heritage Magazine's annual photography contest “Journey of Heritages 2015” was displayed in Hanoi this December. Next year's contest will open on January 15, 2016.


Opening ceremony

2015 was the third year in a row that Heritage Magazine hosted the photo contest "Journey of Heritages" for professional Vietnamese photojournalists. With each passing year, the contest is drawing more established photographers and higher quality works. In 2015, along with the Documentary Photos category, the contest added a Single Photos category to give photographers more opportunities to contribute. This year, Heritage Magazine also worked with organisers to hold two photographic field trips. Participating photographers visited four UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Vietnam and explored highland roads in the Northwest in June and September 2015.


Across lands of Heritages

Held in Hanoi from December 15 to 21, the 2015 Journey of Heritages Final Exhibition featured 70 works, including 15 reportage photo collections; 15 single photos that won prizes and were ranked in the Top 3 during the preliminary phases; and 40 works taken during the two photo tours: “Across lands of heritages” and “See further”.


Photographer Pham Anh won  the Special Prize
 
The collection “Festival of hay and cattle” by veteran photographer Pham Anh surpassed the collections of 15 rivals to win the contest's highest prize, the Special Prize in the Reportage Photos category. The Jury appreciated the creativity, as well as the cultural and artistic values of this photo collection. While there was intense competition in the Single Photos category with over 150 works submitted, the Jury did not issue a Special Prize this year.

At the awards ceremony, Mr. Nguyen Thuong Thuyet, Deputy Editor in Chief of Heritage and representative of the Organising Board, presented winning photographer Pham Anh with a pair of international return tickets on Vietnam Airlines' Northeast Asian flight network valued at up to VND50 million. A representative of sponsoring camera brand Olympus presented the Special Prize winner with one Olympus OMD E-M5 MarkII camera with M.Zuiko Pro 12-40mm f/2.8 lens worth VND45 million.
