Submit your photos to #HolidaysinJapan contest

Japan can be an amazing place for American service members and their families to experience during the holiday season. We’d love to see your photos, whether you venture out to enjoy the spectacular light displays in cities and parks, sample the takoyaki and yakisoba while browsing for shime-kazari at an outdoor New Year’s market, or compete against your neighbors on base for most spirited holiday display in your front yard.

JUMP is sponsoring our third annual #HolidaysInJapan photo contest. We’re gathering photos that show how Americans — past and present — celebrate the holidays while stationed in Japan. The #HolidaysinJapan photo contest is open to all ages and skill levels, current and retired military, family, friends, and anyone in between.

To submit your photos, email them to JUMP@spfusa.org or submit them to us on Facebook or Twitter. To be eligible to win, you also must join the JUMP network. Tag all social media entries with #HolidaysinJapan and @JUMProgram! The deadline for submissions is January 15.

The winner will receive a gift basket valued at $100 in goodies, and see their photo featured on the JUMP website and social media accounts. We’ll also display our favorite submissions in a photo gallery.

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.
