The Daejong Film Awards was first established on August 15, 1958 as the "Korean Film Awards" by the Korean Ministry of Education. During its third year the host changed from the Ministry of Education to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. The name of the awards was also changed to the "Daejong Film Awards" and its first event took place in 1962.
By the 8th event in 1969 and the 9th event in 1970 the name of the event was changed to the "Korean Culture Arts Awards" but was reverted back to the "Daejong Film Awards" by the 10th event in 1971.
Initially 18 categories were awarded with films being awarded the "good film award". In 1973, a "Best Film" award was created.
With the 44th Daejong Fim Awards in 2007, the organization also established the Daejong Film Festival.
