The Australia-Korea Foundation’s 2013-14 grants/scholarships round is currently open, closing April 21. Refer to
for more information about the funding criteria and links to the application forms.
Owing to a generous grant from the Academy of Korean Studies the ANU’s Korea Institute has proudly launched a new website:
Pictori enables users to upload, manage, share, and use all kinds of images related to Korean studies. Although many people will already be using other image hosting websites such as Flickr, Photobucket, Instagram or Pinterest, Pictori offers better protection, and more metadata input tools as well as geographic information, allowing users to indicate on a map exactly where a picture was taken. This feature is unique to image management sites, and it will hopefully provide a useful resource. Pictori also allows you to comment on pictures or ask for help in identifying them. Please view the About page for more information about the site, and its use. Continue reading
