The Jean-Pictet Competition is a week long training event on international humanitarian law (IHL) intended for students (undergraduate or above in Law, Political Science, military academies, etc.). It consists in “taking law out of the books”, by simulations and role plays, allowing the jury of the Competition to evaluate teams’ theoretical knowledge and practical understanding of IHL. To register, teams must consist of three students, from the same institution, none of whom has taken part in the Competition before and all of whom should generally be under than 30 years old.

If you want more information, you may have a look to this document, or to this movie made in 2005.

"I have yet to meet a contestant in the Concours Pictet whose face does not light up when they recall the experience."
