≪What is the JET Programme Video Contest?≫

Click here for the JET Programme Video Contest 2017

1.Purpose of the contest

Celebrating 30 years of the JET Programme, The Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (CLAIR) held “The JET Programme Video Contest” to promote the utilisation of the JET Programme in revitalising Japan’s local communities. The videos in the contest highlight the charm and appeal of Japan’s local regions, as discovered though the eyes of JET participants.

2.Progress of the contest

Autumn/Winter Edition (1 October, 2015 – 10 March, 2016): 50 videos
Spring/Summer Edition (7 April, 2016 – 31 August, 2016): 57 videos
A total of 107 videos were submitted.

3.Review results and recognition

All videos were judged by a panel of experts and 10 award winners, including the First Prize Winner, were chosen. CLAIR recognised these award winners at the JET Programme 30th Anniversary Commemorative Ceremony on 7 November, 2016. Footage of the Award Ceremony is available here: You can view the award winning videos from the following URL (http://jetprogramme.org/30thvideocontestwinners/)

4.About the future of the Contest

“The JET Programme Video Contest” will continue to be held as a valuable project connecting the JET Programme with the local regions of Japan.
CLAIR hopes that this video contest will not only become a tool for future JET participants to integrate further with their local communities and discover the charm of Japan’s local regions through the creation of videos, but also for participants to add value to their region’s communities through their perspective as foreigners, thus spurring revitalisation of the region.
Finally, in implementing the contest, CLAIR would like the content of the videos to develop into a tool that allows new JET participants to learn about Japan before arriving on the JET Programme.

A selection of the submitted videos were edited to create a new video on the theme of ‘JET Participants and International Exchange with the People of Japan’s Local Communities’.
