This flyer was created to mark the 20th anniversary of the Kyoto Certification Certification in 2023.* “Is it possible for companies related to the Kyoto Certification to cooperate and do something new and interesting?”*
It originates from this idea. We hope to create an opportunity for a wider range of junior high and high school students to become interested in the Kyoto Certification Test from a new perspective. I consulted with “Detchy-kun” (Daimaru Kyoto store), who was with me at the G-1 Grand Prix award ceremony, and came up with a plan for a flyer featuring popular characters representing Kyoto.
Similarly, “Kyoto Proficiency Test”
I would like to say a word to “Okurin” (Kansai Electric Power Transmission and Distribution), who was with me at the award ceremony of “G-1 Grand Prix”, and “Tawawa-chan” (Keihan Hotels & Resorts), who also appeared on the Kyoto Test. , with their cooperation, we materialized the planning concept. This co-starring project was made possible by having each character appear, and by adding the Yasaka sightseeing bus guide, who will also be with us at the “Kyoto Certification G-1 Grand Prix” award ceremony.
Photo shoot on the day
The shooting took place at the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce and Industry conference room in the Kyoto Economic Center, which is the actual venue for the July exam (as of 2024, the Kyoto Proficiency Test is held twice in July and December). In order to take pictures of characters related to the Kyoto Test taking the exam, we received full cooperation from the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce and Industry Membership Department Testing Business Division (Kyoto Testing Office), including the entrance ticket, test question booklet, and bulletin board at the test venue. The exam was realistically recreated and filmed. It can’t be helped that all of them are regular test takers, but they all forgot that they were filming and started solving the test questions seriously, which was tough, but I think I was able to convey the atmosphere of the test venue. Is it not?
