Two contests on writing and photography have been launched in the Mekong Delta this week.
The contest’s theme is “The Mekong Delta region and its people in war and peace”, and it focuses on the lives of the people in the delta and their dreams and challenges to develop their land.
Stories on the region’s traditional culture and lifestyle are also encouraged.
Submissions should be a minimum of 5,000 words, and the best ones will be published.
People interested in participating should send their works before July 31 to the organising board at 43 Nguyen Van Cung street, Long Xuyen city, An Giang province.

They will compete for 20 prizes in two categories of black-and-white and colour photos.
