The 2021 writing contest is open to all Vietnamese citizens above the age of 18. Each contestant is able to send an unlimited number of entries about the four European countries to the competition’s website at www.disanv4.com.
Each piece of writing must be at least 1,000 words long and it can also include photos or videos.
Winners of the contest are scheduled to be announced in late June this year. The winner of the contest’s first prize will receive a cash prize of US$2,000, followed by second and third prizes of US$1,500 and US$1,000, respectively.
In addition, a further five consolation prizes of US$100 each will also be delivered.
The Wikipedia contest was originally launched in 2019, attracting roughly 2,000 entries, and the winner was given a free seven-day tour of Poland.
Last year witnessed the contest draw twice the number of entrants compared to the previous year.
