The ASEAN Culture House (ACH), operated by the Korea Foundation, was established in September 2017 in Busan. With its cultural, educational and human resources, the ACH aims to become a lively and interactive platform for exchanges between Korea and ASEAN to further the friendship between their peoples.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the dialogue partnership between ASEAN and the ROK, the ACH is holding a photo & video contest for entrants from Korea, ASEAN and the world. We hope this contest will promote mutual awareness and friendship between Korea and ASEAN, and remind the public of the meaning of exchanges and interactions between two societies.
