The official rules for the Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship can be viewed here.

1

CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY

I mean your heavy metal knitting song

We’ve handpicked three songs from three aspiring metal artists from Joensuu, Finland. Listen them. Listen them well. Download. And start knitting.

2

FILM YOUR DESTINY

Err, make a video of you knitting to one of the tunes

Find your ghettoblaster, play the song you’ve picked, press rec and knit like there’s no tomorrow. Or build a storyline and edit the song in afterwards. We don’t care. Anything goes as long as you put on a good show.

A few rules though:

• Maximum video length is 1 minute
• You need to use one of the three songs we’ve picked (any part of the song is okay) (using two or all three songs is okay too!)
You must do knitting on the video.
• You yourself must perform on the video (extras and other actors are allowed too).
• The video must be uploaded to YouTube on private settings, so that you can provide us with a link to it.
• Age limit for the competition is 18.

UPLOAD YOUR DESTINY

We want to see it. We really do.

Upload the video into YouTube and make it private. Send a link to us for viewing.

4

FULFILL YOUR DESTINY

Apply by filling this form by 15th of June, 2021

5

WAIT FOR YOUR DESTINY

Cross your fingers

Once the application period is over, a well-versed Heavy Metal Knitting jury will review all of the videos.

The semifinal jury rates the videos and chooses 12 contestants that deserve a place in the grand finals. The grand final will be held digitally and if you are one of the finalists, there is no need to travel. You just need to be online during the event on 9th of July, 2021. Your application video will be also used in the finals – so don’t publish it to people yet!

YOUR DESTINY IS IN HEAVY METAL KNITTING.

It really is.

Got in the finals? Great! Be prepared to be online on the 9th of July, 2021 as you will be broadcasted

Didn’t get in to the finals? Bummer, but still: make sure to follow our channels and see the most awesome competition of the year 2021!

The original idea was to hold the competitions during summer 2020, but due to the Covid-19 epidemic messing everyone’s plans, we had to postpone the event by a year and make it digital.

The Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship finals are held in the internet on the 9th of July, 2021.
