2019 Japanese Skit Contest

We are pleased to announce The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur has successfully organized the 2019 Japanese Skit Contest with the theme . Congratulations to all the winners and participants for their enthusiastic response and efforts in their skits production.

This year’s contest is open to all Japanese language learners in Malaysia who are 17 years old and above and currently learning Japanese language either at college, university, preparatory centres, language centres or any educational institutions. The skit was produced by a team of not more than ten (10) members, including both casts and crews. By allowing participants to submit their works through YouTube, the contest has made it easier for students to participate irrespective of where they are.

This year we have received many applications and most of them are very creative and of high quality, thus making the competition very keen and our task difficult this year. We have shortlisted 6 finalists’ team videos which have passed the preliminary screening. The Final Judge Screening was shown through Live streaming via Zoom 2-way online interaction application on 23rd November 2019 (Saturday) which allowed anyone to watch and join through their desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet etc.
