Korea Bridge Summer Photo Contest

Recently I had the opportunity to talk with Jeff Lebow of the Korea Bridge. Thus I am now helping out with the Korea Bridge Summer Photo Contest. Being a past winner myself (winter 2004… I think) I know how fun it is to participate in more of a local contest than those that I have featured recently. For me, winning the contest gave me a boost in confidence to further push my photography and I know that it will help you as well.

The contest is looking for photos from this Summer (2011) and there are two categories; Korea and outside of Korea. Why? well if you have travelled around and got some great summer of shots from Thailand for example but not much from Korea… well we’ve got you covered. The contest is open to anyone living in Korea, minus the judging panel and pro photographers. So that means pretty much anyone can enter.


Vital Visits in Itaewon

The Itaewon and Hongdae districts of Seoul are areas that most foreigners will come to see as a sort of 'holy city' during their time in South Korea. Most Korean cities or towns are not without Western conveniences such as a few fast food joints, one or two grossly overpriced designer clothes stores, and cinemas showing Western movies in English - but for a truly homesickness inducing day, a visit to the area really is necessary.

 

A walk through Itaewon's crowded streets is one of the rare occasions in Korea where you don't feel like a minority (the other being the Mud Festival). You're likely to see a lot more Westerners in the crowds here, and for a moment it's easy to forget that you're at the heart of Korea's largest city.
