While the Arbitration Commission is set up in accordance with the universal language in which the competition is conducted each month, in cooperation with State-accredited embassies, the winner shall be announced at the end of each month, in this context, it is decided that requests for participation will be received until August 15, and the winner will be announced on August 25.
The competition invited Koreans residing in Qatar or Korea who wish to participate in it to write the aforementioned topic in poetry in four lines below the topic in the center’s account via “Instagram” app, and the center promoted the competition for this month in the Korean language, so that Korean poets can participate in a clear reflection of the universality of the competition.
The competition, entitled “Nazra,” in its current Korean version, is based on the fact that the Prize is local, Arab and global, and seeks to play a vital role in the dissemination of the noble values of local poetry globally, especially given its orientation at its current session in Korean language, as well as its local, Arab and global orientation, which reflects the openness of country poetry at the global level.
