The Festival drew a record 800 participants from 86 national and local radio stations in 63 provinces and cities. The jury board selected 203 works from 500 entries for the final round. More than half of local radio stations competed in the live broadcast category.
VOV Vice President Pham Manh Hung said that the strong development of science and technology has transformed radio’s production and broadcast methods and its intimate interaction with listeners.
“Live radio broadcasts are now different. We also broadcast on digital platforms and reach wider audience using smart devices,” said Mr. Hung.

This year’s National Radio Festival inaugurated a new Golden Voice award. Secretary General of the Festival Dong Manh Hung said, “Evaluating the entries, we found that we have a team of broadcasters with very good voices. They can express what they want and what the work wants to convey to listeners. They create a link with the public via radio waves.”
VOV Vice President Pham Manh Hung, again, said, “Our goal is to create a widespread public interest in radio, especially among the leaders of localities, ministries, and sectors. We help people appreciate the role of radio in daily life, in national socio-economic development, and in national construction and defense.”
