A contest entitled “The Republic of Korea in the eyes of Vietnamese young painters” will be launched on October 1 by the Korean Cultural Centre in Hanoi.

The contest aims to bring a deeper insight into Korean culture to the Vietnamese public via the work of Vietnamese painters as well as promote cultural exchanges between the two countries.

This is the first time the Korean Cultural Centre has organized an art contest for painters under 35.

Park Nark Jong, director of the centre, said he hoped the contest would be a good opportunity for young painters to show their love and talent for art as well as their understanding of the RoK.

Paintings will be judged by a jury of top painters from the RoK and Vietnam and the result will come out on December 1 and the winner will be awarded a trip to the RoK.-VNA
