NDO - The assessment process of the National Press Awards 2019 has entered its final phase where the jury council will select the best works from a shortlist of 147 works to honour at an awards ceremony scheduled for next month.

The works under consideration in the final round were shortlisted from more than 1,600 eligible submissions belonging to 11 different categories.

Nhan Dan’s Editor-in-chief Thuan Huu, also chairman of the jury council, stated that 2019 is the year with the largest number of submitted works in the 13-year history of the awards.

This year saw the participation of 120 journalists’ associations and is the second consecutive year that the award organisers have received entries from all 63 provincial journalists associations.
