VRN launches Dialogue with Rivers photo contest

Le Anh

The Vietnam River Network (VRN) has launched the 2018 Doi Thoai Voi Dong Song (Dialogue with Rivers) photo contest which is aimed at raising public awareness of water resource protection and calling for people’s practical actions for sustainable development in the region.

With the theme “The Mekong Delta – Water and Women”, the fourth edition of the contest emphasizes images of women in the Mekong Delta who are facing environmental issues like water pollution, water shortage, saltwater intrusion and climate change.

Lasting from May 1 to August 31, 2018, the contest will present monthly prizes, grand prizes and extra titles for entries selected by professional and experienced photographers and environment experts.

Winning entries will be updated on the contest’s Facebook of VRN-Doi Thoai Voi Dong Song, and the best photos will be exhibited at the prize presentation ceremony.

According to VRN, climate change, upstream Mekong River projects, and people’s activities of daily living and production have seriously threatened water resource security in the Mekong Delta over the past nearly decade. Besides, shorter rainy seasons and rising sea levels have worsened water pollution, freshwater shortage and saltwater intrusion in the delta.
