Accordingly, the organising board presented five first prizes to the performances of artists from the Vietnam Circus Federation, the Vietnam Circus and Vaudeville School, and the Phuong Nam Art Theatre.

In addition, ten second and three third prizes were awarded to other outstanding works.

Speaking at the closing ceremony, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ta Quang Dong affirmed that the competition contributed to honouring the artists, actors and actresses who have enthusiastically and passionately devoted themselves to the country’s circus.

He also expressed his hope that the artists will continue to nurture and spread their love for circus art, together contributing to the development of Vietnamese culture in the integration period.
