Tutorial contests consist in kitsuke tutorials made by the participants in video format. These tutorials are always helpful, specially to newbies in the kimono world, and we will be adding them to our page.
The main goal of the Tutorial Contests is to make our members to train their kitsuke abilities, and, to see which one can make a good tutorial that is also easier for everyone to understand.This is what we expect when seeing a kitsuke tutorial:
- It must be easy to understand (both to newbies and oldbies!)
- It must teach correctly how to dress properly a kimono or obiHow will we evaluate each tutorial:
1. How easy it is to understand and to learn from it
2. Quality of the tutorial (ex: image/video quality, background, the participant's way of explaining)
3. Quality of the kitsuke coordination presented in the video
- Be respectful to other members
- The video presented to the contest must not contain any kind of self-promotion, comercial purposes, nudity or any content that may offend or discriminate other people
- Do not send us videos that are not made by you, and that you don't have permission to share
- Only one video per contest is allowed (choose your best!)
- No videos with the image flipped (this can happen when you make your video with a cellphone camera. Please be sure to fix this problem before sending to us)
- The video can contain 1 to 2 persons (kitsuke tutor and helper)
- The videos must be sent to us only by email or private message(facebook or forum).
- The email must also contain your name(or nickname) and your country.
- In your video tutorial, you are free to just show how to dress a kimono/obi, or you can also describe how to do the several steps, it's up to you. This description can be made by voice or by writing.
- In your video tutorial, you can choose to protect your identity. You don't have to show your face if you don't wish to."What happens if my video wins?"
If your video tutorial is the winner, it will be the one we will upload in our page so everyone can see and learn from it.
