Tag Archive: picture trick contest

Overview :

  • No preliminary round. All registered contestants will proceed to final round.
  • The contest is one minute freestyle.
  • Type of play style allowed: 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A. Only one type of play style can be use in the freestyle (no play style change during freestyle is allowed).
  • Only one throw is allowed in the freestyle ; this means :
  • No “regeneration trick” allowed during the freestyle
  • No changing yo-yo(s) allowed during the freestyle
  • Dead yoyo(s) will be considered as the end of your freestyle (even though there will be no point reduction for this condition)
  • Bind return/yo-yo snapping back to your hand during the freestyle will be considered as ending the freestyle (your freestyle is finished and judge will stop counting for score; no point reduction for this condition)
  • Final score will consist of Technical Execution score and Performance Style score. The judges will score Technical Execution (T.E.) elements as they see them occurring in real time. Performance Style (P.S.) will be separately assigned at the end of the freestyle.

Technical Execution (T.E.)

Positive Point Awards:

  • Number of well-defined picture trick/string formation created
  • Complexity/difficulty of the picture trick/string formation created
    • example : tower formation will have more positive points than a green triangle (GT) formation
  • Originality & creativity of the trick
  • Other factors, besides difficulty level, that may increase the basic value of a trick element include but are not limited to: laceration, speed, amplitude, control, and movement
  • Transitions between tricks shall be scored

Negative point assessment is the same as in the 1A/2A/3A/4A/5A divisions general scoring.
