The highlight of the occasion will be an international photography fair held at the Ho Chi Minh City Youth’s Cultural House to showcase an array of award-winning pieces from photo contests around the globe.

On display will be a range of equipment and new technology used in photography, whilst activities of photography clubs from across the country will be introduced.

A seminar on contemporary photography, exchanges between Vietnamese and foreign artists, as well as a photo marathon and photo tour contests will also get underway.

Furthermore, an award ceremony of the second international photo contest organised by the HCM City Photography Association under the sponsorship of the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP), the Photographic Society of America (PSA), Image Sans Frontiere (ISF), and the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists (VAPA) is slated for November 30.
