The Central Highland province of Lam Dong has became a stop-over of the 2013 Vietnam Heritage Photo Awards exhibition, after it toured 14 other localities nationwide.

Showcasing at the event beginning from December 16 are 120 best photos selected from more than 6,000 entries of 339 photographers to a contest, which was organised by the Vietnam Heritage Magazine under the Cultural Heritage Association of Vietnam and the Cultural Heritage Association of Ho Chi Minh City.

The photos feature the country’s tangible cultural heritage, ranging from architecture, sculpture and paintings to handicrafts and examples of intangible heritage such as music, dancing, festivals and rituals.

They reflected the beauty of Vietnam’s land and people, as well as the country’s traditional culture and unique cultural identities of its ethnic groups.

The event will last until December 30, contributing to celebrating the 120 th anniversary of Da Lat city and the 2013 Da Lat Flower Festival.
