The best images from the Shakespeare Lives in Photography competition are to be exhibited in Hanoi from 25 March to 15 April 2016. The photo exhibition will take place in a special space inside disused cargo containers at Hanoi Creative City. Entry is open for the public. 

Organised by the British Council in partnership with the British Embassy and Hanoi Creative City, the exhibition kicks off the Shakespeare Lives global campaign in Vietnam. Shakespeare Lives is comprised of a series of events and activities throughout 2016 celebrating Shakespeare’s work on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of his death. 

The Shakespeare Lives in Photography competition run by the British Council has attracted 200 entries and produced 11 winners choosing to creatively reference scenes from either Shakespeare plays, his influence on literature or capture a famous Shakespearian location. 

The 11 winning photos will be displayed alongside commissioned images from live Shakespeare performances around the world, featuring scenes from Richard III, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth, amongst others.
