Talk Talk Korea 2017, a global contest that invites non-Koreans living both in Korea and abroad to explore Korea through different forms of media, has attracted a total of 31,055 entries from 135 countries this year.

This has been the highest number of submissions on record for a contest of its kind hosted in Korea.

Over a period of 55 days, running from May 1 to June 24, some 28,170 works were submitted in the video, photography, online comic strips, illustration and mobile phone artwork categories, while the special category “PyeongChang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games” gathered some 2,885 entries.

This year, the highest number of submissions were received from China. The top 10 list of most submissions included five Latin American countries — Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Argentina and Ecuador — as well as the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Algeria. Russia, a winter sports powerhouse, submitted some 526 works this year, almost twice as many as last year’s 287 works.

The submitted works will undergo four rounds of reviews, from public online evaluations to reviews by professional judges. Anyone can participate in the online evaluations between July 12 and July 16 at the official website (www.talktalkkorea.or.kr). Final results will be announced on July 24, 200 days before the start of the PyeongChang Olympics.

The prize-winning works will be announced on the Talk Talk Korea website, as well as at the Korean Culture and Information Service (KOCIS) website and at Korea.net. Winners of a first prize in each category will be given a chance to visit PyeongChang Olympic venues exactly 100 days before the grand opening of the Games. They will also partake in a number of excursions, including K-pop concerts and other culturally immersive activities.

“While we are very pleased with the record-breaking participation rate, we are even more excited to showcase for the public the wide range of submitted works of art, and to promote Korea and the upcoming PyeongChang Olympics,” said KOCIS Director Oh Yeongwoo.
