Every year the Cannes Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique brings together pyrotechnicians from around the world hoping to carry off the Vestale d’Argent.

Every four years, winners compete for the Vestale d’Or. This trophy is highly prized and recognised on the international scene as rewarding excellence in the pyrotechnic arts.

The jury also awards the Jury Prize to pyrotechnicians who stand out for their originality.

Best point of view to admire the fireworks


It is in the fantastic setting of an open bay between the Iles de Lérins and the Pointe de l’Estérel, in a natural setting and the 400 metre wide and 200 metre high, star bedecked screen of the City of Cinema, that the best pyrotechnicians will come to compete and win before an audience of 200,000 people, their heads craned skywards. This is a meeting of the gods of the world of fireworks.
