The songwriting competition "Pride of Vietnamese Entrepreneurs" was organized by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry in coordination with the Vietnam Musicians' Association. The press conference to launch the competition took place on March 16, 2023, and the submission of entries concluded on July 31, 2023. The Entrepreneurial Culture Center under VCCI was tasked with providing advice and serving as the focal point to assist the VCCI Executive Board in organizing the competition.

 

The songwriting competition "Pride of Vietnamese Entrepreneurs" is jointly organized by VCCI (Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry) and the Vietnam Musicians' Association.

The judging panel consists of the following members: Mr. Nguyen Duc Trinh, a musician and the Chairman of the Vietnam Musicians' Association, serves as the Head of the Panel; Mr. Hoang Quang Phong, Vice Chairman of VCCI, is the Deputy Head; NSND (People's Artist) Nguyen Quang Vinh, Chairman of the Hanoi Music Association, is a member; NSND Nguyen Trong Dai, a member of the Executive Board of the Vietnam Musicians' Association, is also a member; and musician Tran Nhat Duong, the Head of the Inspection Committee of the Vietnam Musicians' Association, is also a member.

VCCI collaborates with the Vietnam Musicians' Association to facilitate practical songwriting experiences for composers from May 8 to May 10, 2023. The practical locations include the Vinfast automobile factory in Hai Phong, the International Tourism Area of Doi Rong under the GELEXIMCO Group, and the Nam Cau Kien Ecological Industrial Zone. A total of 37 composers participated in this practical songwriting excursion.

The organizing committee carried out promotional activities for the competition through various communication channels of VCCI and the Vietnam Musicians' Association. They also sent official letters to associations, clubs, businesses, met with entrepreneurs and musicians to invite them to participate in the competition.

The competition received strong support and close collaboration from the Vietnam Musicians' Association. Immediately after the press conference to launch the competition on March 16, 2023, the association disseminated the competition rules to over 60 affiliated chapters nationwide. The association also worked together in organizing the practical experiences for musicians at businesses, as well as deploying renowned musicians to serve on the competition's judging panel for assessing the entries and assisting in selecting and arranging the winning compositions for the award ceremony.

The competition also garnered interest and participation from both professional and amateur composers from all corners of the country. Even some veteran musicians who had not composed for a long time responded to the spirit of "Pride of Vietnamese Entrepreneurs" and submitted their entries. Notably, the competition received compositions from many entrepreneurs who took up the pen to share their own stories.

The competition also received enthusiastic support from entrepreneurs, businesses, associations, clubs, and more. The biggest success of the competition is the creation of 23 excellent works dedicated to entrepreneurs, a topic that has been relatively rare in the past. The organizing committee hopes that this will contribute to encouraging and uplifting the spirit of Vietnam's entrepreneurial team – the economic warriors and the backbone of the national economy.

The awards ceremony is scheduled to be a significant event in the series of activities commemorating Vietnamese Entrepreneur Day organized by VCCI, taking place in early October 2023.
