Air Guitar World Championships
21.-23.8.2024 Oulu, Finland
Ilmakitaransoitto kilpailumielessä on lähes ympärivuotista toimintaa, ja kisaverkosto ulottuu usealle mantereelle.
Lisenssin alaisia osakilpailuja järjestetään yli kymmenessä maassa: kukin maa selvittää ilmakitaristiensa parhaimmiston omissa kansallisissa kisoissaan. Hallitsevan maailmanmestarin lisäksi vain kansalliset mestarit pääsevät suoraan MM-finaaliin.
Kansallisia kisoja järjestetään sekä harrastus- että bisnespohjalta, molemmissa tapauksissa rakkaudesta lajiin. Oulun päämajalta kisajärjestäjät saavat ohjausta sekä näkyvyyttä ja kontakteja.
Ilmakitaransoiton MM-kisat on kansainvälisesti rekisteröity tavaramerkki, ja sen alla operoiva verkosto toimii rauhanomaisen ideologian ja yhteisten sääntöjen mukaisesti.
Ota yhteyttä, mikäli olet kiinnostunut kisojen järjestämisestä tai yhteistyöstä kansallisten kisaorganisaatioiden kanssa.
