After three months of running, the Organizing Committee has received the participation of a large number of Vietnamese, bringing a "kaleidoscope" of cultural diversity to the photo contest. With the message "Showing we care, sharing our vision on culture diversity", the contest shows the landscapes of the heritage and monuments; cultural inheritance through generations; art and creativity; the harmony of man and nature.

One of the three first prizes goes to the work "Colleagues" of Dinh Cong Tam, a doctor currently living in Soc Trang who loves photography and often uses his leisure time to take photos. The subjects that he often captures are the heritage and cultures of the ethnic groups. His photo is included in the series "The face of a General southern Boi singing", which has been taken since 2015, in order to record the uniqueness of the intangible cultural heritage that is gradually disappearing.
