As you may know, registration has closed early. Contestants have already starting submitting videos (which is great) and some more are on the way. This page will have the contestants videos and scores.

Preliminary Round Details and Scoring:
Each player will submit a 1-minute long video of a freestyle using only up to 3 takes. They will be scored on Entertainment and Cleanliness (up to 35 points) and Technical Execution (up to 65 points). The top 10 players will advance to the Finals.
As for deductions. Points will be deducted for video cuts (3 points), yoyo restart (1 point), yoyo change (1 point), switching of play styles (3 points), [only if offstring] offstring yoyo bounces on the ground before play is continued (1 point). Note: if 2A or 3A is being used in the video, players will receive double deductions if both yoyos must be restarted or switched out.
I have made sure to explain all this and more scoring to my assistant judges (LEDGERYOYO and Modman10).
