The Swedish Embassy in Vietnam launched a national photo contest on Wednesday to further promote mutual understanding, and highlight how Swedish innovations and discoveries are applied in the Vietnamese daily contexts. 

The competition, “Swedish Innovations through Vietnamese Lenses,” is also an intriguing way to celebrate 45 years of diplomatic relations between Sweden and Vietnam in 2014.

The contest, which welcomes entries from all Vietnamese with no age limit, encourages artistic, creative photos highlighting one or several Swedish innovations in a Vietnamese context. It will close on October 12.

The awards ceremony will take place at the “Innovative Sweden” exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City on November 10.

The winner will earn a round trip to Sweden, including a visit to Fotografiska – the Swedish Museum of Photography – in Stockholm along with other places in the capital.

The runner-up will receive a return flight ticket to Phuket, Thailand. 

The Swedish Embassy will also publish the photo entries on its Facebook. The entry which receives the most votes online will be offered a return flight ticket to Bangkok, Thailand.

Those interested can take a look at the Swedish Embassy’s website at for detailed information.

Vietnam and Sweden established diplomatic ties in 1969.
