The festival hopes to serve as an opportunity to enjoy the intangible cultural assets of two nations and feed the connectivity within a global community.
Kimchi lovers who absolutely can’t go a meal without a dish of the fermented vegetables, this online contest is for you.
Following the success of last year’s K-Food Online Festival, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea has launched a social media contest, Say Kimchi Festival, in Singapore from May 11 to May 31.
About $3,000 worth of Korean mart vouchers are up for grabs.
Participants will have to follow @KfoodSGunited on Instagram and Facebook, and share an original photo or video of their experience with Kimchi on your public accounts with the hashtags #KoreanKimchi, #KfoodSGunited, and #SayKimchiFestival.
Winners will be determined by how creative their submission is, along with its fun-factor and originality.
There are 14 prizes up for grabs – one set of $500 Korean Mart vouchers, two sets of $300 Korean Mart vouchers and four sets of $100 Korean Mart vouchers each in the photo and video category.
Mr. Ahn Young-jip, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Singapore, said: “I sincerely hope that everyone can come together safely and have an enjoyable time taking photos and videos of their fun experiences with Korean Kimchi. I am truly grateful to Singaporeans for their love of Kimchi and other Korean food. We will continue to walk together on this journey to combat the on-going pandemic.”
Time to whip out your phone and get snapping, Kimchi lovers!
