A competition of the world's greatest pyrotechnic masters
Every year, five pyrotechnicians from around the world hope to win the prestigious Silver Vestal Prize. Due to a prestigious and rigorous selection process, it is the virtuosos of this art of our time who compete each year. The jury also awards the Jury Prize, honoring the participant who has stood out for their originality. Meanwhile, the audience can now also do justice to the competitor whose performance has touched their hearts through the "Audience Prize."
Every four years, the winners of previous years, laureates of a Silver Vestal or a Jury Prize, compete for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Vestals. These globally renowned awards inspire admiration and represent a guarantee of excellence in the field of pyrotechnic art.
The Cannes Pyrotechnic Art Festival is truly a symbiosis of the arts. It is not just the quality and originality of the fireworks that are analyzed. It goes beyond beautiful colors and shapes: it is an entire artistic representation of 25 minutes, a choice of a specific theme whose staging must be harmoniously accompanied by music.
Originality, aesthetic richness, rhythm, and musicality, staging, synchronization... a multitude of details that the jury will examine to analyze these technical feats, which must also be artistic by provoking admiration and emotion.
A magical & historical event
Fireworks, invented in Asia in the 11th century, have always fascinated humankind. An original art that requires creativity and sensitivity combined with the mastery of explosive ingredients. Thus, as at the court of the King of France in 1615, where the first fireworks were launched, come marvel at this grandiose spectacle.
Since 1967, Cannes has vibrated with the colors and sounds of fireworks, gaining nobility over the decades: the festival has become a highly prestigious and renowned competition worldwide. Indeed, the city on the French Riviera played a pioneering role in the field of musical pyrotechnic shows.
The Cannes Pyrotechnic Art Festival now brings together about twenty countries and 200,000 spectators from around the world who flock to the Croisette to admire the beauty of this spectacle. With family, friends, or alone, few will resist the desire to marvel at this majestic performance.
