A contest focusing on Chinese culture and tourism was launched in Sydney on Thursday. The organizers, the China Tourism Office and the China Cultural Center in Sydney, and Australian New Express Media Group, held a launch ceremony on the same day.
The contest admits entries in three categories- calligraphy and paintings, photos, and short videos. Each category is divided into three groups: children, teenagers and adults, based on participants’ age. The prizes include the Grand and the First, Second and Third. Winners will have the chance to show their works at the center in March 2021.
Xiao Xiayong, director of the cultural center and the tourism office, said the contest is set to enhance the two nations’ cultural exchange, as the tourism in Australia was severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
