We present the first results of a large-scale map of the galactic Giant Molecular Cloud Vela C, in the 345-GHz continuum. The observations were carried out with the LABOCA bolometer array at APEX. We discuss the spatial distribution of dust cores in the region, their physical properties and the derived Core Mass Function.
