    Seoul Citizens Vote to Rank 20 New Creations in Seoul

    The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) conducted a vote between September 27 and October 23, 2017 to rank the popularity of 20 New Creations in Seoul. The voting was a success with nearly 60,000 voters casting their votes.

    First place went to Deoksugung Stone Wall Path (10,843 votes) which opened to the public in an expanded capacity for the first time in 60 years in the summer of 2017. Second place went to the Oil Tank Culture Park (9,182 votes) which was transformed from a top security facility with restricted access into an environment-friendly urban regeneration & culture complex, and third place went to the Sewoon Shopping Center (9,133 votes) which at one time was the center of the electronics business and reborn into the mecca of the creative manufacturing industry. Fourth place went to Seoullo 7017 (6,444 votes), a roadway transformed into a walking path earlier this year in May.

    Between September 7 and 25, 2017, a photo contest was conducted on the theme of 20 New Creations in Seoul. 217 citizens submitted 894 works over the 19 day period and 22 works (1 first prize, 4 second prizes, 7 third prizes, and 9 participation prizes) were selected for awards following screening by experts. First prize went to a photo that captures the view of the sky from Oil Tank Culture Park T6.

    The 22 winning works will be on display at the 2F of Oil Tank Culture Park T6 between October 29 and November 19 and at B1 of Citizens Hall between November 22 and December 7.
