Vöông Baïch Lieân, one of the contest judges, said she was also impressed with the themes of this year’s contest which ranged from culture, tourism, gastronomy of Vieät Nam to burning social problems in the country’s society.
“Many articles are written in good French and have a good style,” said Lieân.
Lieân believed in the importance of the contest, saying it provided an opportunity for Vietnamese and foreign participants to express their feelings, emotions and points of view about the country, while highlighting the richness and diversity of the French language.
“It offers chances for contestants to familiarise themselves with journalism as well as to introduce Vieät Nam’s culture and people to the community of 80 Francophonie countries,” according to Lieân who used to win the first prize of the contest held in 2016.
She hoped this contest would be more widely promoted by social networks and media, and meetings of the organisers with students in different universities in Vieät Nam.
“It will probably encourage more and more young people in Vieät Nam to learn French and help Vieät Nam strengthen its active role in the Francophonie in the future,” said Lieân. — VNS
