New Wave Zone
In an attempt to discover competent writers or artists who will lead the character industry in the future, the Korea Character Licensing Fair Secretariat opens the New Wave Zone where works by individual artists and university club members are exhibited for free each year. By applying the three-year graduation system, the New Wave Zone intends to guarantee fairness in the eligibility of participants and broader participation (participants who took part in the exhibition every year from 2014 to 2016 are restricted from applying to take part in the New Wave Zone in 2017).
