The Mapo Cultural Foundation holds the ‘2021 Hangeul Love Mapo Group Contest’ to commemorate Hangeul Day on October 9. The contest period is from July 26 to September 10 in three fields, including video, lyrics, and photos, and the winner will be announced on October 6.
The ‘2021 Love of Hangeul Mapo Group Contest’ is an event to remind the importance and excellence of Hangeul. There is no restriction on genre or format in the video field under the theme of Hangeul, and it is divided into general division and student division (elementary, middle, high school).
The lyrics field, which will be debuted this year, is divided into clever lyrics, K-pop songs, and children’s songs (elementary school students). Female singer-songwriter Cho Dong-hee took charge of the composition of the clever lyrics field, which listens to pre-composed original songs and submits the lyrics. Only the first place in the area of creative lyrics will support the production, release, and distribution of music in the future.
K-Pop recording, which translates unnecessary and meaningless foreign languages and slang songs into the Korean language that all generations can sympathize with, is highly anticipated. In the children’s songwriting field, select one song from among the stars (Lee Soo-in) and flying a kite (Song Jeong-ae), and only elementary school students can participate.
The field of photography, which discovers cultural contents in everyday life, has also been added. In the general section, pictures of daily life with beautiful Korean language, and in the student section, photos of landscapes in everyday life reminiscent of Hangeul are the themes.
The work must be filmed after January 1, 2021, and only works filmed within Mapo-gu according to the administrative district are accepted. If there is a possibility of infringement of the portrait right, it must be submitted with the consent of the portrait right.
Song Je-yong, CEO of the Mapo Cultural Foundation, said, “I want Hangeul Week to be known to many people. We will actively support so that many citizens who cherish and love Hangeul can communicate and empathize with more people through cultural contents created in their daily life.”
