So you don't know what to do this Saturday? Why not channel your creative self and create a logo or slogan for Seoul?
Seoul Brand Idea Contest
From the Mayor of Seoul:
"The Seoul Metropolitan Government is currently developing a new city brand for Seoul that reflects Seoul's identity and with which Seoul citizens can identify. Accordingly, we are holding the Seoul Brand Idea Contest, and invite all citizens of the world to participate. We welcome your interest and participation."
You can find more details and information at the contest's webpage, but here is the gist:
1 - Design a logo and/or slogan for Seoul.
2 - Submit it by September 1.
3 - Win on September 8.
4 - Take home 4.5 million won!
What's the Catch?
No catch. But perhaps step 3 of the foolproof plan seen above should be emphasized. You must WIN if you want to take home the 4.5 million won.
Also, the 4.5 million won is the prize money for both contests combined. There are 2 separate contests involved here. One is to design a logo. The other is to create a slogan. The logo awards 3 million won, while the slogan awards 1.5 million won.
Win both, and take home 4.5 million won.
