Description
The contest is organised by Medicinal Bioconvergence Research Center (Biocon) from Seoul National University and Seoulin Bioscience.

The theme for this year's Bio-Art Contest is Food & Feed.

There is no doubt that “Food and Feed” are very critical and fundamental elements for all living organisms on the earth. Although we became able to live in affluence of food due to increased food productivity followed by the growth of science and technology, some ironic situations are happening because of food issues. For instance, some people are struggling due to obesity while at some parts of the world the others are starving to death. Recently, ‘Food & Eating’ has become one of the most popular contents in various media. As well, pictures of food also have become the most frequently uploaded items on SNS. On the other hand, many NGOs (Non-governmental Organizations) keep working on the campaigns, appealing the public to help poor and starving kids in Africa. There are people enjoying meats while other people are enjoying vegetarian diets. Some people say that eating with joy would not bring any guilty-mind while others say eating light is a virtue. Besides, many healthy foods from all over the world are being introduced through various media. At Bio-art Contest 2018, we are planning to have time to share and contemplate various problems around ‘Food and Feed’ that the world is facing today.

There are six categories: Digital Photography, Microphotography, Computer Graphic, Video. VR (Virtual Reality).
