Billboards and posters??? Seriously??


When we say we are going to make the best ever International Yo-Yo Open on the globe, we don’t mean it to be a half kickin’ only. So yes buddy, we will make 2 giant billboards sized 4×6 meters and dozens of posters. The billboards will be put at the famous Kuta Square and Legian, while the posters will be distributed around Indonesia.

This is perhaps the first time ever in the history of yoyoing contest that the organizer made such a massive size of billboard ; and yet obviously the coolest design ever in the mankind yoyoing history. Have I mentioned that we are not only made one billboard? OK, it’s 2 full sized billboard on the city, ready to proclaim the born of the first ever YO-YO GOD.

Why we do all this stuff only for a yo-yo contest? Because this isn’t just a yoyo contest. It’s going to be a memorable yo-yo contest which every yo-yo player everyone have to experience. Yoyoing is all about fun. In BIYO2011 we want to make it awesome, and the whole world should know it. Come join us at 8-9 this July in Bali. It is not too late to book your flight ticket now.

Got anything to ask about this poster contest? Just write it down on the comment section of this post and we will answer it for you.

What are you waiting for ? Start designing now! Gods bless yo!

Some yoyoer say that you should master all the 5 divisions in yoyo before you are worthy enough for the word “yoyo god”. We do think the same here in Indonesia.

Last year at the 2nd Indonesia National YoYo Contest we held a contest called Best Of Best, or BOB in short. The first winner ever of this contest was Kevin Nicholas Tandean, winning with 91,85 points. The 2nd winner was Adi Dharmawan (76.66), while the third winner was Dewa F. Reza (68.00).

Best of best ? What’s make it so special ? Here are the things :

  • the contestant must perform all the 5 divisions (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A)  in 5 minutes yoyo freestyle with 5 minutes background music (self provided)
  • each freestyle (of each division performed) is a 1 minute freestyle
  • there’s no particular order of divisions the contestant must perform, it depends on each contestant’s creativity in creating an  epic 5 minutes freestyle
  • every 1 minute the contestant will be noticed and therefore he/she has to change the freestyle’s divisions

Another special thing was the prize we have last year for the BOB winner. Collaborating with Coca-Cola as our sponsor, for the first time ever in the history, we give the champion a special edition of  a vintage Vespa PTS 100cc. Yes, we’re seriously giving the famous Italian scooter for free. The Vespa is custom painted and air-brushed in Coca-Cola artwork. A real prize for the real champion.

Vespagenic !

It was the first ever yoyo contest in the world that requring the contestant to perform all the 5 divisions. It’s our highest respect to honor a true yoyoer, the one that has dedication and passion to be the best yoyoer – to be a yoyo god. So this year we are proudly announcing that BOB will be hold as a special signature contest of Bali International YoYo Open. BIYO is the only contest in the world where you will have a YoYo God title.

Continuing “the tradition of making an art”, the BOB champion of BIYO will be given “the best-ever-you-can-ever-imagine trophy”. As a spoiler for you : the trophy will be made of the finest metal molding covered with state-of-the-art sculpture of yoyo and awesome Bali traditional artwork, then colored in some of the most luxurious finishing and coating, and of course a “YoYo God” title in it. Further detail of the trophy will be announced later as the contest day is getting closer. Two thing you should know : Bali is really famous for its art, culture, and also crafting skills and therefore we are ultimately put the art and details in our first concern in making the trophy.

Here is the examples of the trophies we made for the 2010 Indonesian National YoYo Championships. It’s fully made of wood, manually carved and painted by a real Balinese artist to assure it has the finest quality and beauty. We guarantee you that this year’s BOB trophy will come in a perfectly more exclusive design, quality, and material.

The trophy will be a lot better this year.

The trophy will be a lot better this year.

The trophy won’t be reproduced every year like usual contest trophy. Therefore the winner of the contest (or the YoYo God for that year) must bring back the trophy to the next year’s BIYO and he/she must compete to defend the title as a YoYo God.

Best Of Best contest is the only ticket in the world for you to be recognized as YOYO GOD. Don’t waste your time, start mastering all the 5 divisions now and assure your path to be the first YoYo God.

Note : this is only a little piece of fun and excitement you will get when you are here in BIYO. Have I mentioned about party nights, beach, bla bla bla.., cuisine, bla bla bla…and some tour to paradise you’ll never forget? Not yet? Well then we are still thousands miles away to the real jackpot guys. A little advice for you : save your money for the real journey to the best international yoyo contest you’ll ever have. Best ever, never been better.
