If you could have your own trading card, what would the front of it look like? Would you be yo-yoing in a cool location? Would you be dressed to impress? What trick or pose would you do? By now everyone has seen at least some of the very many trading cards of yo-yo players that are in circulation today.
What we’re looking for you to do is this:
Submit a photo of you doing your best trading card cover pose.
You can yo-yo anywhere, do any trick, wear any type of clothing, etc. This is your cover photo, so be creative.
-Post a link to your photo here on our facebook page.
-As far as judging criteria, we’re looking for:
-Location: It’s important for every photo to have a really neat backdrop to showcase your pose and trick.
-Timing: When doing a yo-yo trick, timing is very important. Same goes for taking a photo. Try and time your trick and pose just right so that youre showcasing the yo-yo and yourself in the coolest position possible. Whether it’s mid-trick, or mid jump, or you just finished your hardest showstopping bind return.
-Creativity and Uniqueness: Please don’t just yo-yo in front of your favorite wall in the house and call it a day. We’re looking for you to push yourself creatively. Come up with a location that looks neat and means something to you. Do you dare yo-yo where no one has yo-yoed before? Do your best trick, or your favorite trick, or just go for the coolest in motion shot. Whatever you can do to make this photo your own and convey who YOU are as a player, do it.
-Just NO PHOTOSHOP PLEASE! Cropping is fine, but no cut and paste and no visual enhancements. The whole point is for you to get out and be creative, not who’s the best editor.
- Any Style of yo-yoing is acceptable
