Jazz vocalist Nah Youn-sun, Billboard K-pop columnist Jeff Benjamin and mobile carrier SK Telecom won Korea Image Awards for enhancing Korea's national image.

Nah won the Korea Image Fire Stone Award for spreading K-jazz around the globe.

"I hope my enthusiasm for jazz can have a greater influence around the world and help spread a positive image of Korea," she said as she accepted the prize.

Benjamin, who has been promoting K-pop in the media, nabbed the Korea Image Stepping Stone Bridge Award. The Korea Image Stepping Stone Award went to SK Telecom. The carrier was recognized for commercializing 5G technology worldwide.
