Submit your photos to the #JUMPintoSpring contest
JUMP is sponsoring a new #JUMPintoSpring photo contest. We’re gathering photos that show how Americans enjoy the beautiful sights of spring while stationed in Japan. The #JUMPintoSpring photo contest is open to JUMP members of all ages and skill levels, current and retired military, family, friends, and anyone in between.
For many service members and their families, spring in Japan can be a magical experience with gorgeous natural views, lively festivals, and fun vacations. Japan just finished a record-setting Golden Week and millions of people got the opportunity to travel. After such a long and bitter winter, spring provides opportunities to leave base and explore. Some people find parks to host hanami parties or go fishing on a solitary lake in the mountains. On base, the warm weather and sweet smell of flowers give the perfect excuse to stroll outside or play some sports with Japanese neighbors.
Please note that by submitting your photos to a JUMP photo contest, you are giving permission for them to be used on the JUMP website and social media. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to view photos from earlier contests and to see this year’s winning entries.
