Hey fellow Yoyoexperts, I’d like to host a contest for you all. It will be just like the World Yo-yo Contest except it’s online. The prize: Bragging Rights and a special YYE logo signature from our own JM!
The Rules are simple:
Just like a contest, this will require you guys to do a freestyle. It has to be 3 minutes long with 15 seconds over max. No Editing! We want to keep this as close to a real contest as close as possible.
Music has to be clean! Exceptions are hell, up to one max of the following words: st, A, and d**n.
String must be visible and you can use any form of yo-yoing you want.
Dog Walker: A 3-Minute Freestyle with all beginner tricks. Points will not be deducted if you switch from 1A to 0A
Semi-Pro: Use any trick you want. Graded on technicality.
Entertainer: The point of this is to entertain. If you get a reaction from the judges from your video then you get the points. Try comedy, dancing, or think what Joseph Harris does for his routines.
Messer-Upper: Do a freestyle but you get more points for messing up! You must however try your hardest and if you mess up then points get added. Switching yo-yos count for huge points.
Ladder: I give the list of tricks and you must do a freestyle for those exact tricks in any order you want.
Our judges are the Forum eXperts and JM, only if the July eXpert hasn’t been announced yet, and the criteria is:
Audience Reaction: /20
Note: Criteria might change.
You can use any video, but it must meet the requirements. Remember Have Fun!
Date of contest:
To be announced. Got to see how many people are competing and our judges time. The contest will be live in the chat room and you must not show your video to YYE until the contest.
Have Fun and Spin On!
