Hi there, I would like to inform you that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Korea (MOFAT) had organized a video contest in promoting Korea to the world. They are inviting foreigners to join this contest and only them are qualified for entry (Koreans are not allowed).
The message below came from the Philippine Embassy in Seoul to encourage all Filipinos living in Korea to also join this exciting contest. I think all foreigners are qualified based on the PDF file they attached on the email that I received. You can see the file here: MOFAT Video Contest 2012.
So whether you are in Korea or in the Philippines, you can join the contest. Make sure to follow the guidelines and conditions of the contest so you will be qualified.
