Korean Name and Artwork Design Contest

Are you an artist? Do you doodle in class? Have you secretly wanted to become the next da Vinci? If so, then keep reading.

This contest has a registration period from September 11th to September 22nd.. In order to register during this two-week period, you must come by the King Sejong Institute in Foy hall to receive the official artwork paper stamped with an official seal that is specific to this contest.

The rules for this contest are simple:

  • First, you must incorporate your name in some way into your artwork and your name must be written in Korean. If you do not know how to write your name in Korean, stop by the King Sejong Institute to attend our workshops (9/13 and 9/20 from 2:30-3:30) that will teach you how to write your name in Korean.
  • Second, you can use any creative medium you wish, as long as it can be put onto a 2D piece of paper this includes painting, drawing, gluing and pasting etc.
  • Lastly, creativity is key. The more creative the work, the better chance you have at winning.
(Disclaimer: works that reflect aspects of South Korean culture are advised.)

The deadline for this event is September 29th by 5 p.m. You can bring your final submission to the King Sejong Institute in Foy Hall.


Workshops: Sept. 13 & Sept. 20

2:30pm to 3:30pm @ Korea Center/King Sejong Institute in Foy
