Blog Korea and Win a Trip to Korea!

Share your treasured memories of Korea with people from all over the world and be in the running to win Korean tour packages valued at US$20,000 along with many other great prizes. 

The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) is recruiting 100 international bloggers of Korean culture & tourism from June 15 to August 31 2009 in collaboration with the Voluntary Agency Network of Korea (VANK). The event titled ‘Blog Korea! Visit Korea!' is aimed at strengthening the online promotion of Korean tourism.

Blogs can be written in a variety of foreign languages (English, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, and Russian). Persons interested in becoming one of Korea Tourism's top bloggers can apply for the event after posting content about Korean culture and tourism on their blog.

The KTO will recruit one hundred (100) bloggers in early September after examining the extent to which bloggers are interested in Korea, the contents of each blog, and the number of "hits" on each blog. The one hundred (100) top bloggers of Korean culture & tourism will be awarded prizes and the top five (5) bloggers will receive the latest LG netbook worth $500, fifteen (15) runners-up will receive a digital camera, and the remaining eighty (80) bloggers a MP3 player. Moreover, the top thirty (30) most active bloggers will be invited to a special camp in Korea in October 2009.

In May 2010, the KTO will select the three bloggers who have shown the best performance over the last eight months (between September 2009 and April 2010). The best blogger will win a Korea vacation package valued at $10,000 while two runners-up will win a $5,000 Korean tour package. The winners can be accompanied on their trip by a family member or friend.

The KTO hopes that the event will enhance interest in Korean culture & tourism among bloggers from all over the world. The KTO will recruit 500 top bloggers within three years, and aims to promote Korean tourism more aggressively by expanding its exchanges with bloggers.
