NDO –The Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) launched two contests on August 17 with the aim to promote the spirit of solidarity and sharing of the Vietnamese people as well as to encourage their determination to realise the dual goals of fighting the pandemic and ensuring economic development.

Accordingly, the contest entitled ‘Giai Dieu Noi Tuyen Dau’ (Melodies in the Frontline) calls on musicians to compose songs on the COVID-19 battle with a focus on the determination, efforts, and unity of the entire Party, people and army as well as the strong belief and consensus of the whole country towards achieving victory against the pandemic.

The entries should also praise exemplary models who are braving difficulties and obstacles to protect people’s health, safety and lives.

Entries will be accepted from August 19 until October 1, 2021. The award ceremony is scheduled to take place in mid-October.

Meanwhile, the video making contest themed ‘Thoi Khac Kho Quen’ (Unforgettable Moments) encourages entrants to produce video clips, up to three minutes in length, featuring the Party and State’s guidelines on COVID-19 prevention and control.

The videos must be posted on the TikTok social media platform with hashtags #blousetrang and #khoanhkhackhoquen. Each competitor can publish no more than three videos from September 1 to 30, 2021. Winners of the contest will be announced on October 5.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, VGCL Vice President Ngo Duy Hieu said that the two contests seek to popularise successful models and effective solutions in pandemic prevention while documenting the silent sacrifices and difficulties facing frontline forces, including medical workers, armed forces and trade union officials, in the battle against COVID-19.

They also aim to raise public awareness of COVID-19 prevention and control and raise social consensus in driving back the pandemic.
