Get your work noticed with TC Learn competitions! Put your creative skills to the test and enter one of our video or photo-based competitions. As well as great prizes, all finalists will receive feedback on their work within a TC Talk video.

As well as competitions for media creators, we'll also have regular giveaways, so please visit back often!


Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your entries, we have extended the deadline for the video competition until June 30th and winners for the giveaway and photo competition will be announced on June 5th.

We have been working hard to ensure that the next wave of competitions are directly related to videos from our Influencers and look forward to sharing them with you very soon!

Video Competition : Show off your homes!

Follow Shiori and Chris’ lead and make a video showcasing where you live ala MTV Cribs.


April 1st - May 31st


Whether you live in a mansion in the hills, a cramped 1 bedroom apartment in Tokyo or a boat on the river, we want you to share your place in a short, fun video! All entrants have two months to put their camera and video editing skills to the test to make the most dazzling video they possibly can.

The focus of this competition is not to show off who has the biggest house, but to show everyone how creative you can be!

The grand winner will receive an amazing TC Gift box, loaded with goodies selected by the TC team that we hope can help you further hone your content creation skills.

Video Length : 5-10 minutes.

Winners Announced!

Thank you so much for all of your amazing entries, check out our top five including the grand winner via our video here.

So, in no particular order...

Giveaway : Win Joey's Waifu Pillow

Own a piece of Abroad in Japan's 'Journey Across Japan' memorabilia.

Joey badly wanted to take this home, but we managed to wrestle it from his grasp and now it can be yours to keep (assuming we can now wrestle it away from Shiori!).
