JCC Virtual Connection & Inspiration


We know The J is an important part of your daily lives and your community, even if you're not here in person! That's why we are bringing the community TO YOU! Check this page weekly for new #VirtualJCC programming you can enjoy in your own home. We will feature cooking, music, art, storytelling, and special talents! 


Whose talents will we feature? Yours, of course! We want to feature our community and remind everyone just how much talent, skill, and creativity is here in Akron. All you have to do is submit your video below- and you have a chance to be featured on our weekly video series! Please note that a submission does not guarantee your video will be featured. 


*Age Restriction: We are only accepting content from community members ages 18+.

**Copyright Note: Although we LOVE cover song videos, sometimes they can cause issues with Copyright Claims, with YouTube and the song artists/producers. An easy way to see if your video has broken any Copyright Claims is to upload your video to YouTube and check the Copyright status. How-To Video HERE. We will check on our end too and we will only post/share videos WITHOUT Copyright Claims.

Submission Guidelines:


Framing- Most important! Shoot horizontally! Use landscape mode and avoid portrait mode.


Stability- Set your laptop, phone, or camera on a tripod or steady surface. (Please do not hold your camera while shooting to avoid shaky footage).


Set- Position your camera at eye level. (If you can, avoid angles where the camera lens is looking up or down on you).


Lighting- Shoot in daylight if possible. Position yourself so windows or your main light sources are facing you, not behind you.


Audio- Close windows, doors, turn off air conditioners, fans, and anything else that may cause distracting noises.
