The contest is aimed at promoting South Korea – Vietnam cooperation relationship.
The Korean Cultural Center in Vietnam in collaboration with the Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA) has invited designers nationwide to take part in a contest on the anti-pandemic fight.

Vietnamese people of all ages are eligible to submit their entry to the contest on posters and illustration creation. The works should spread the messages of hope and encouragement for people around the world in the combat against the Covid-19 pandemic, stated the Korean Cultural Center.
“Vietnam and Korea have been close partners in many different fields for nearly 30 years,” said Ambassador of the Republic of Korea Park Noh-wan.
I believe that this contest will inspire people of two countries to continue sharing hands to build a solid South Korea-Vietnam relationship to win Covid-19″, he added.
Each contestant is allowed to submit one work via an online platform between June 11, 2021 and July 15, 2021.
Participants are encouraged to make a video of their creative process, which could earn them an extra score.
All excellent works will be selected for exhibition and awarded in August 2021 at the Korean Cultural Center, 49 Nguyen Du, Hanoi.
The prizes will include a Grand Prize worth VND40 million (US$1,700); first, second and third prizes worth VND25 million ($1,100), VND20 million ($870), and VND10 million ($436), respectively. Two extra prizes will be VND5 million ($218) each.
