The JET Programme Video Contest (Spring/Summer Edition) submission deadline has been extended!

CLAIR is currently holding the JET Video Contest to provide a platform where both current and former JET Programme participants can discover and share the charms of Japan’s local communities.

We have decided to extend the submission deadline to allow participants to film during August, when people can enjoy typical Japanese summer landscapes and local festivals, and to give new JET Programme participants who arrive in July and August a chance to participate The winners will be announced at the JET Programme 30th Anniversary Event which will be held on Monday 7 November, 2016, and will be awarded certificates, medals, and other prizes. You can win Japan domestic travel vouchers up to ¥100,000!
