This may be of interest for you bloggers out there. Just got below from the Korea Tourism Organization. Some nice prizes for those who write nice things about Korea….
The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) is recruiting 100 international bloggers from June 15 to August 31 2009 for a promotional event. Blogs written in a variety of foreign languages (English, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, and Russian) can be registered in this event. Those who would like to become one of Korea Tourism’s top bloggers can apply for the event after posting content about Korean culture and travel on their blog. The KTO will recruit 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.
If you’d like to take part in the event, please visit KTO’s website http://english.visitkorea.or.kr.
The 100 top bloggers of Korean culture & travel will be awarded prizes. The top 5 bloggers will receive the latest LG netbook worth $500, 10 runners-up will receive a digital camera, and the remaining 80 bloggers a MP3 player. Moreover, the top 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 8 months (between September 2009 and April 2010). The best bloggers will win a Korea vacation package (worth between $5,000 and $10,000). The winners can be accompanied on their trip by a family member or friend.
