Philip Morris Korea sponsors environment campaign

The non-governmental organization Beautiful Community Forum announced Thursday that it will host photo and sculpture exhibitions as part of the 2011 Philip Morris Korea Clean Beach Campaign.

The exhibitions will be at Sokcho Beach in Gangwon Province and Hamdeok Beach in Jeju from July 30 through Aug. 1 to raise awareness for preservation of sea resources.

For the photo exhibition, the forum is holding an environmental photo contest, from which 40 pieces will be selected.

The contest is open to those age 19 and up, and each contestant can submit up to three pieces, the forum said.

The sculptures displayed in the two exhibitions will be created using recycled materials to highlight the need to protect the environment.

The 2011 Philip Morris Korea Clean Beach Campaign is being held for the ninth year, and about 180 volunteers will take part in conservation activities in six major beaches around the country.

According to the company, the volunteers will also support police patrolling the beaches at night from July 30 through to Aug. 1.
