The preliminary assessment round of the Press Awards officially began in Hanoi on April 8.

The jury council for the preliminary judgment consisted of 69 members who were divided into groups of prizes with 11 categories.

The entries must highlight the country’s achievements and discover outstanding examples who have made great contributions to national renewal and development; as well as feature the difficulties and limitations of social life and the spirit of fighting against corruption and waste.

The winners are expected to be announced at an awards ceremony on the occasion of Vietnam’s Revolutionary Press Day (June 21).
