The winning works include seven A prizes, 24 B prizes, 39 C prizes and 25 consolation prizes, announced Standing Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Journalism Association Ho Quang Loi at a press conference on June 14 in Hanoi.
 
Of them, 48 works or 50 percent in total, belong to local press agencies, said Loi, who is also Standing Vice Chairman of the Council of the 11th National Press Awards 2016.
 
He said the council has decided to increase the prize values from the 2016 season, with each A prize winner to receive VND 60 million, while B and C prize awardees will be granted VND 40 million and VND 30 million each, respectively.
 
Meanwhile, consolation prizes will be worth VND 10 million while works going into the final round will receive VND 3 million each.
 
According to Loi, entries covered the country’s most important events during 2016, especially the 12th National Party Congress, as well as socio-economic development, security and national defence, new-style area building and poverty reduction.
 
There wasn’t a large difference in quality between works of central and local press agencies, he said, adding that many local press agencies’ reports, investigative reports and narratives were appreciated.
 
However, many entries lacked creativity and renovation as well as failed to find out thorough solutions to their matters, he noted.
 
This year’s awards attracted 1,637 press works from 214 agencies and individuals across the country.
