A place for worldwide Hangeul culture exchange that empathizes and communicates with ‘pictures of Hangeul in everyday life’
The National Hangeul Museum of South Korea has launched an exciting contest for Korean language lovers!
The contest is held with the theme of “Hangeul Met in Everyday Life,” and will run for three months from May 18 (Tuesday) to August 16 (Mon). Anyone who loves Hangeul (no distinction between foreigners) can participate.
How? All you have to do is to take a photograph that contains Hangeul and send the picture and an application form via email ([email protected]) or submit the entry through their official website (http://hangeulgongmo.co.kr/?lan=_eng).
They don’t require high-quality artwork. Any beautiful Hangeul-related pictures, such as a photo of learning Hangul, a photo of a pretty and unusual Hangeul signboard, a photo of Hangul found in a T-shirt, belongings or bag, or a photo of Hangeul that you met by chance abroad, will be accepted. The original copies of prize-winning works must be submitted with at least 3,000 pixels on the longer side (graphically synthesized works not accepted). The metadata of the picture (date, etc.) must be included.
National Hangeul Museum’s director Shim Dong-seop, hopes that this contest would serve as an opportunity to spread Hangeul culture not only in Korea but also around the world.
He hopes that this will be an opportunity for both domestic and foreign nationals, who are exhausted from the prolonged Corona 19, to discover the beauty and value of Hangeul in their daily lives, and to empathize and communicate through Hangeul.
Special prizes will be given to the winners which will be announced in September, so give it a try! The list of winners will be posted on the website and they will also be notified individually.
