Prof. Nam Yun Kim (1949 - 2023),

It is with great sadness that we received the news that our long serving jury member Professor Nam Yun Kim’s passed away on March 12th.

It was a great pleasure to work with such a personality as Nam Yun, who enriched our jury with her artistic expertise since 2008. With her extremely loving and balanced nature, she was, for everyone, a calming influence amidst the competition excitement. Nam Yun was an exceptional person and our interaction with her was always inspiring. We are all truly grateful to have known Nam Yun and will forever cherish her memory.

In honour of Professor Nam Yun Kim, her jury seat will remain open for this year’s competition.
