In order to further develop ukulele playing techniques and to find talented individuals, we started the “Famous Ukulele Contest” in 2002. Through the endless support from the music industry and the supporting team, the contest eventually became known as “The Ukulele Contest” ever since its 4th run. This historical contest will be holding its 10th anniversary contest later in 2019, which will be a large turning point for us. We are extremely grateful to those who have supported us throughout the years, and a special thanks goes out to anyone who has participated in our events.
Furthermore, after the 10thanniversary contest, we plan to make advancements to “the Ukulele Contest” in order for it to become one step closer to our ultimate goal of bringing more excitement into the ukulele community. As 2018 is the year prior to the upcoming anniversary contest, we wish to have more and more participants in this year’s contest. Thus, we will be holding “The Ukulele Contest～4ALL～”, a contest based on submissions of videos and photos.
As we get ready for the official start of our movement, we will dedicate this first year to working in sync with the preparation for the anniversary contest, and to keep progressing as an organization. Therefore, we wish for further support and participation from our loving ukulele community.
Lastly, thank you to those who have supported “The Ukulele Contest”, and we look forward for your support onward.
