CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY

I mean your heavy metal knitting song

The official song for 2022 qualification round is from an aspiring metal band Palesloth. Download and listen the song. And start knitting.

2

FILM YOUR DESTINY

Err, make a video of you knitting to the tunes of the song “Distorted” by Palesloth

Find your ghettoblaster, play the song, 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 the song we’ve picked (any part of the song is okay)
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, so that you can provide us with a link to it.
• Age limit for the competition is 18.

UPLOAD YOUR DESTINY

Upload the video into YouTube. Send a link to us via application form for viewing your newborn piece of art.

WAIT FOR YOUR DESTINY

Cross your fingers

The semifinal jury rates the videos and chooses 12 contestants that deserve a place in the grand finals. The grand final will be held on July 8th 2022 in Joensuu, Finland.
