Somebody should submit this.
From CNNGO.com, via Facebook friend Rob:
Looks like Engrish.com -- the snarky website showcasing error-riddled English signs in Asia -- won't be getting as many submissions from Korea.But of course:
How awesome is this? Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) is offering to reward photographers who submit snaps of muddled signs at tourist spots.
The prize? A gift card of ₩50,000 (approximately US$45) that can be used at any vendor that accepts credit cards -- otherwise known as free money.
Although there are no hard-and-fast rules about what constitutes a "tourist spot," you can't go wrong with the usual foreigner hotspots of Myeong-dong and Itaewon.
Although the event site is only displayed in Korean, foreigners are also welcome to participate in the event.The short article has a few more details on the noble effort in the works, I'm sure, to get some foreign-language material cleaned up before the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Thing is, Engrish.com will probably get just as many submissions from Korea as it always has: this contest won't be looking at Gibberlish on shirts, on menus, in businesses, and in K-pop.
[T]he event does not apply to mistakes on road signs, restaurant menus and guidebooks, due to the fact that these categories are overseen by other departments and this particular event is being hosted by the Tourism Service Improvement Team at KTO. The latter will then pay to have the signs fixed.
