2012 Taekwondo Photo & Video Contest

The Korean Cultural Center at the Embassy of the Republic of Korea is proud to announce the 2012 Taekwondo Photo & Video Contest, a nationwide search for exceptional photography and video creations that capture the spirit and unique personal experiences of Taekwondo, Korea’s native martial art. The annual contest, now in its fourth year, has been a key embassy program for promoting and reaffirming the special bond between the United States and the Republic of Korea by bringing together people from diverse backgrounds with a common passion. Previous years have included essay and visual art categories, while this year’s contest changes gears to highlight original photography and videos.
