1) ビデオはシンプルなもので結構です。携帯電話で編集なしもOKです。

2) ビデオに顔を映したくない場合は、景色を背景にして声だけを入れたり音楽を演奏したり、歌ったりしてもいいです。

3) お気に入りの自然や街、街並みなどを撮影した動画であれば、それを撮影すること自体が創作行為なので大歓迎です。

4) 動画はどの言語でもかまいません。 5) 29 秒の長さはガイドラインです。20 ~ 35 秒程度であれば問題ありません。

6) 投稿されたビデオが100本になったら締め切ります。ホームページを確認してください。

Additional Notes

1) Videos can be very simple, and we expect most people will submit a one-take, non-edited video taken with a phone. That is just fine! 

2) If you do not want to show faces on the video, you can, for example, have a person or people off camera talking, playing music, or singing, while something is being filmed. 

3) A video of a favorite view of nature or town or cityscape is welcome, as the act of filming it is a creative art in itself. 

4) The video can be in any language. 

5) The 29 second length is a guideline - anywhere from 20-35 seconds or so is fine. 

6) We will stop accepting videos when we reach 100 submissions. Please check our website for updates.
