VTV.vn - Contemporary life in Ha Noi is reflected through photos displayed at an on-going exhibition in the capital.

The 125 photos showcased were chosen with a photo contest launched by the Hà Nội Photographic Artists’ Association in June. The association received more than 1,500 entries from about 200 photographers.

No photo met the criteria for top prize. Three first runner-ups included Nguyen Hoang Hien (The Development of Western Ha Noi), Bui Phuong Thao Nguyen (City of Peace) and Tran Anh Tuan (Hanoians Welcome Hoang Xuan Vinh).

Chairman of the association, Dang Dình An, said the contest and exhibition celebrate the capital’s Liberation Day (October 10) and reflect modern life in the city, the relationship between tradition and modernity, construction, people’s activities and the city’s development.

“The photographers captured remarkable moments such as Olympic winner Hoang Xuan Vinh coming back from Rio De Janeiro, the development of western Ha Noi, and a ceremony respecting peace of Ha Noi – City of Peace.”

The exhibition runs at Exhibition House, 45 Trang Tien Street, Ha Noi.
