The Seoul city government and the Seoul Design Foundation are teaming up to support small design firms struggling amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Hosting an open competition, they’ll be giving out 1.7 million U.S. dollars in prize money to a thousand winners. For a chance to win, any individual or company with fewer than four employees can submit their design ideas for “COVID-19 and the New Normal.” Judges will pick the winners based on the creativity of the design among other factors as well. The winners will receive their prize in early September. The city said the competition is aimed at helping small firms that are struggling to stay afloat due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
