The State and Ho Chi Minh prizes are the highest honours conferred by the Party and State to outstanding works of art and literature with profound meaning and high artistic value that serve the revolutionary cause and contribute to the development of literature and arts.
In 2016, 18 authors were awarded the Ho Chi Minh Prize and 95 authors were awarded the State Prize in the fields of literature and art.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam and the ministry’s leaders attended the opening ceremony at the Fine Arts Museum yesterday.
“Photos have been reprinted from files contributed by authors and the late authors’ families,” said Tran Thi Thu Dong, deputy director of the ministry’s Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition Department. “While only small sculptures are displayed, large photographs are shown of the large prize-winning sculptures.”
“We regret that we haven’t been able to collect original paintings of some of the painters showcased here yet,” she said. “We have here only five original award-winning paintings and some paintings by the artists preserved at the Fine Arts Museum.”
“We also display here some recent works by some prize-winning artists to feature a more general view of the artists’ styles,” she said.
Nine recent paintings and sculptures by Ta Quang Bao, Phan Thi Gia Huong, Co Tan Long Chau, Buu Chi and Do Son are exhibited to serve the purpose.
