SEOUL, Dec. 12 (Yonhap) -- The Seoul-based non-profit Corea Image Communications Institute (CICI) announced Wednesday the winners of its annual awards in recognition of efforts to promote Korea abroad.

The 2019 awards recipients are Hangul, the Korean alphabet, popular YouTuber Josh Carrot, who runs the channel Korean Englishman, and ballerina Park Sae-eun.

The organization recognized the role of Hangul in promoting the country and its culture abroad. The YouTuber, who has nearly 3 million subscribers, has created Korea-related videos that introduce Korean lifestyle and culture. The ballerina was chosen for her role in promoting the country in the performance art field. A premier danseur, the second-highest tier in the Paris Opera Ballet, she claimed the 2018 best female dancer award at the Benois, in Moscow, in June.

The awards ceremony is set to take place at 6 p.m. on Jan. 10 at InterContinental Seoul Coex in southern Seoul.
