Coming up at the end of September, the Bucheoon Comic Fair is taking place,
where publishers and artists from all over Asia come and check out each
others work; looking for new talent and what not.
This year, the Korea Cartoonist Association, has budgeted to invite about 40
guests from around the world, concentrating on picking a few artsists and
publishers from each major country. Invited guests will get flights and
accomadation and will be asked to attend presentations, galas and forums.
Publishers and artists are asked to present some sample pages and a resume
of their work to a committee of artists and organisers.
Invitations will be based on the quality of the work, the scope of work and
the importance of that work (”influence and popularity”).

then a comprehensive listing of work, plus a biography – including details
of awards, experience.
So if you are published and want to go to Korea, or know some one who would
