For all of you official journalists out there who would like a free trip to Korea.
Seoul Selection is looking for professional journalists interested in writing stories on the city of Seoul. Eligible for the Western press tour are print media journalists and travel columnists of established media companies in Europe, the Americas, and Oceania. Selected journalists may stay up to 10 days in Seoul to cover a story about this city of 10 million, beginning mid-April. All the expenses — roundtrip airfare to lodging and ground transportation — will be covered by the host, Seoul Metropolitan Government. For the year 2008, Seoul Selection will be administering the press tour program for the above-mentioned regions on behalf of Seoul Metropolitan Government, which seeks to promote Seoul tourism in the Western press.
Journalists of established Western media are preferred for the program, which will be held three times a year. Freelance writers including travel bloggers and influential writers and editors from magazines are also encouraged to apply. All program costs will be covered during the tour, including interpreter expenses, meals and accommodations.
Seoul Selection appreciates the interest showed by those who already submitted applications. We are sorry to ask, however, that you resubmit your application, using the new format in the attached file below. We want to assure you that your applications will go through the same process as the new applications.
