Local and foreign artists should submit their entries from April 1 to July 7 at the website dogmaprize.vn.

Self-portraits are a must but contestants can freely choose the genre of art they like, such as sculpture and photography.

The first prize is VND120 million (US$5,569). Artworks shortlisted for the final round will be exhibited at the HCMC Fine Arts Museum for one week starting from July 8.

The contest in 2013 attracted more than 400 artworks, 45 of which were chosen for the final.

Initially, the Dogma Prize was open to Vietnamese artists only but this year foreign and domestic artists can take part.
