Werrd Banger Trick Contest

Get in touch with us





It’s that time again. Last year we asked you to show us your best tricks.  It’s time to show us your C4 again!

By now you probably know all about this contest, but just in case you didn’t hear about it last year (shame on you, shame, shame) here’s how it works:
The theme for this contest is simple:

Film your best banger trick (stand-alone trick – not a combo) and send us a link to the vid (See terms below).

There will be FOUR lucky winners chosen as the favorite by Werrd. One for best “amplitude” (see definition below), one for the most creative banger as voted by us…and one lucky random winner. Yep, we’re doing that again. Just by entering you could win. The lucky random winner will be in the running for a Werrd MINUTE. If you win best banger trick in the Amplitude category you will win a brand new 2K13 Werrd Irony JP. In addition, we will be giving away a brand new 2K13 HOUR for the video with the most views (cut-off as of voting day).

To be eligible to win:

  • Your video must not exceed 30 seconds in length (it’s a banger, remember, not a combo – so your vid should be fairly short.).
  • Your video must be hosted on a publicly accessibly streaming site (like youtube or vimeo).
  • You must email a link to your video to andrew [at] werrd.com
  • You may enter as many times as you like, however you can only win one category (except the “Most Views” category).
  • Winners of the Amplitude and Most Creative Banger categories are not eligible for the Lucky Draw prize.
  • Judging will be done by Werrd crew and all decisions are final.

The deadline for entry is midnight Septeber 20 EST.

Prizes are:

The prize for Amplitude is an Irony JP – color choice is at our discretion.

The price for the Most Creative Prize for lucky random winner is a Werrd HOUR – color at our discretion.

A. If you have one, please do. If not please enter. If you win, you’ll soon have one of the best playing yo-yos around.

Q. Can I enter more than once?

A. You sure can!

Q. Why are manhole covers round?

A. Haven’t you worked that out yet???


What is Amplitude?

Amplitude (Variation in magnitude of moves, movement, stage use): Are the trick elements performed with amplitude that increases the difficulty and risk of the elements? Are the trick elements performed with speed that increases the difficulty and risk of the elements? Are the trick elements performed while the player is moving so to increase the difficulty and risk of the trick elements? Are the trick elements performed with changes in planes from vertical to tilted planes that increase the difficulty and risk of the trick elements?
