My name is Sohee Kang. I’m in charge of attracting participants to the
Korean government's Ministry of Science, ICT & Future Planning's Open
Source Software World Challenge 2013.
This is the 7th competition. USD $31,000 in total will be awarded to
winners in the international division of this open source software

I’m really sorry for bothering you, but we would feel highly honored to
have your students as participants.

*International participants are exclusively allowed to submit any open
source software developed within one year, even if they got a prize from
another competition with it. In addition, even projects over one year old
will be accepted by our judging panel as well, if it has been significantly
improved recently.*

Please visit our website  www.ossaward.org.

Our registration deadline is August 4th.

The final submission deadline is October 6th.

I hope you encourage your students to participate. I’m quite sure that this
will be a great opportunity for them. Every team that submits its completed
project will get an official certificate issued by NIPA of Korea. They have
only to submit project document, source code and demo video in
English, or provide
the project URL including all. We’ll wire the award money to the winners.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact me at
ossawards at gmail.com .

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Sohee Kang
