To discover and showcase the hidden charms of Japan’s local regions, CLAIR has been accepting videos from current and former JET participants in the JET Programme Video Contest.

Recently, a panel of judges consisting of experts in a variety of related fields has decided the 10 winners of the contest, including, of course, the First Prize Winner.  Congratulations to all of the award recipients, and thank you to everyone who participated in the contest!

The 10 award winners will be presented with their awards and prizes at the JET Programme 30th Anniversary Ceremony, to be held on 7 November, 2016.

The award-winning videos, as well as the other submitted videos, can be viewed on the JET Programme’s website at
