Accepting Nominations of Works for the 1st Bucheon Diaspora Literary Award

Accepting Nominations of Works for the 1st Bucheon Diaspora Literary Award

Period 24 August 2020 ~ 30 October 2020
Location Bucheon

Diaspora literature is the sublimation of historical efforts, lived experiences, and the process of identity formation. It is a literature that communicates hospitality and collaboration instead of hatred and discrimination. It is not limited to writers from a diaspora.


Bucheon, UNESCO Creative City of Literature, recognizes the potential and accomplishments of diaspora literature. Collective identities such as a race, ethnicity, and nationality continue to divide the world with hostility and hatred. The recent pandemic has highlighted the long path we have ahead of us. Diasporas are the thread that weaves these splits together through cultural exchange, and transforms pain and sacrifice into a patchwork of tolerance and harmony.


By launching the Bucheon Diaspora Literary Award(BUDILIA), we seek to uplift the spirits of solidarity, hospitality, and collaboration. As Bucheon is hosting the 1st edition with the goal of awarding the prize in Autumn 2021, we are now seeking nominations of outstanding works for the selection of a worthy prizewinner.
