The objective of the contest is to enhance Japanese language communicative competence among non-
native Japanese language learners in Malaysia. By allowing participants to submit their video skits
through YouTube, the contest has made it easier for students to participate in the contest irrespective of
where they are. 

Theme of the Video 
‘ X ’– Contents of videos must clearly depict this theme and use the Japanese language creatively so as
to portray this message across. The theme can be interpreted based on your own perspective.
