Press works about millennial Thang Long-Hanoi awarded

Outstanding press works about the millennial history and development of Thang Long-Hanoi were rewarded at a ceremony held in Hanoi on Oct. 4.

Organisers presented six A prizes, 20 B prizes, 33 C prizes and 33 consolation prizes for the best entries of the contest, which was launched in June last year as one of a series of event to mark the 1,000th birthday of the capital city.

The entries were selected from some 700 entries by journalists and freelance nationwide.

To Huy Rua, Party Politburo member, Party Central Committee’s Secretary and Head of the Party Central Committee’s Information and Education Commission, praised the active participation of pressmen.

He said the contest, with its entries published and broadcast on the media over the past year, has helped increase the public’s attention to the Thang Long-Hanoi millennial anniversary.

The contest was co-organised by the Party Central Committee’s Information and Education Commission, the Ministry of Information and Telecommunications, the Hanoi People’s Committee and the Vietnam Journalists’ Association./.
