Petition for Nationals?

How exactly does the petition process work for nationals? I’m planning on going again this year and want to compete this time. How involved is the petition process?

It doesn’t seem to bad they usually require video of a performance of yours to see if it stands up with the other competitors, and they usually look to see if you have competed in any other major contests recently. I think there was a spot for references as well in case someone well know in the yoyo community can vouch for your skills. .
