Kim Dok-man, a public relations official of the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC), has been named winner of the first Grand Record Culture Award for his contribution to disseminating the government’s anti-corruption policies to newspapers.
An award ceremony was held in a room of the main National Assembly building in Seoul, Monday. The award is offered by the Korea Record Institute.
Kim, a former journalist called an “evangelist of integrity,” has made about 2,000 contributions on anti-corruption policies, both in Korean and English, to newspapers since 2005, the organizer said.
A graduate of the department of English literature at Yonsei University in Seoul, Kim obtained a doctorate in political science (communications) from the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies.
