The event has been held annually in different parts of Finland since 1988. The locations have included Hämeenlinna, Turku, Oulu, Helsinki, Lahti, Imatra, Jyväskylä, Joensuu, Seinäjoki, Helsinki and Tampere... and the triumphant story continues!

Eight competitors compete in each of the skills categories for the Taitaja finals, with each of these competitors having made it through from the semi-finals. The Taitajien Taitaja (Most Skilled Person) has been selected since 2002. The Taitajien Taitaja is someone who promotes vocational skills competitions and represents Skills Finland at various events.
