9TH PHILIPPINE INTERNATIONAL PYROMUSICAL COMPETITION 2018

This spectacular and world-renowned competition got underway on 17th February 2018 at the SM Mall of Asia over the bay in the Philippines.

It all kicked off with an opening display by the local team, Platinum Fireworks, who will also close the event on 24th March once the final team, representing China; Polaris Fireworks have completed their display.

So far, the competition has seen some of the best professional display teams in the world take to the skies to wow the gathered thousands and there have been several excellent displays from USA, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Canada who all showed their wares with verve. My choice of the best so far would be Canada. Whilst there have been some standout sections for each team, with the pretty bronze willow brocades from the USA, sweet titanium flashes from the German team, awesome dragon egg shells from the Swiss contingent, there were some hoohahs too as the Austrian team failed to get the heart shells the right way around (I know – no-one does!) but they had some dark sky moments which were a little sad.

The fourth evening of spectacular fireworks happened this weekend as France, represented by Pandora Pyrotechnie fire alongside the Italian team, represented by Alessi Fuochi so there should be a plethora of colour and effect on offer.

Of course, we are all waiting with bated breath to see the UK’s fabulous Pyrotex Fireworx throw down the gauntlet next weekend. This team really have become World beaters and are currently the Grand Champions. Their theme ‘Angels’ will be in memory of friends lost in the last year is certain to be a heart-tugger but I for one cannot wait to see their precision and the sheer beauty of another of their displays.

The very best of luck to all and a very special ‘go get em’ to Pyrotex Fireworx.

FIRST EVENT 17th FEBRUARY 2018 – PHILIPPINE INTERNATIONAL PYROTECHNIC COMPETITION 2018

WHAT: PHILIPPINE INTERNATIONAL PYROTECHNIC COMPETITION 2018
WHY: INTERNATIONAL PYROTECHNIC COMPETITION
WHERE: S M MALL OF ASIA, BY THE BAY, PASAY, MANILLA
WHEN: FIRST EVENT SATURDAY 17th FEBRUARY 2018
COST: DETAILS BELOW – BUT THERE ARE FREE VIEWING POINTS 🙂

This event will be 9th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition bringing together the best international professional pyrotechnic specialists from around the world to battle it out for supremacy.

The UK has been fortunate in this event having picked up several wins over the years, but the last two years have been won by Pyrotex Fireworx in grand style. They are renowned for their symmetry and clean crisp lines and colour and of all the displays I have seen, this team has never disappointed. We wish them the very best of luck when they compete in March.

The opening of the event is left in the hands of local team Platinum Fireworks who will also be responsible for closing the event at the end of March. Platinum Fireworks swept the board in Calgary in 2017 picking up the awards for the Kids, Peoples, Best Pyromusical and Synchronised fireworks categories. Just amazing and a spectacular feat when you are up against the best in the World.

After the opening ceremony, the first competitors are the team from Switzerland – SUGYP SA. This team are well versed in competition and have won awards at some of the best events in Europe, picking up wins in Ignis Brunensis in 2013, Hanover 2014, Pyromagic in Szczecin in 2016 and last year they won Master of Masters in 2017 again in Szczecin.

It is going to be a close call with who is going to pick up the win so we will keep you posted and the next competition will feature the teams from Romania – Pyro Events and Germany – Steffes Ollig Fireworks.
