The Directorate of Family and the Department of Tourism, Fine Art, Photograph and exhibitions at the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism have called for submissions to the contest that illustrate the differences and similarities between Vietnamese families in the past and present. The theme is Vietnam’s socio-economic development and growth.

Organizers said the contest aimed to create awareness of the contributions the community can make towards maintaining and developing good family values in Vietnam.
