    The winner of the BEST WHEEL category in our 2021 firework awards is Carousel by @Zeus Fireworks!

    This unique square-shaped wheel received 28.5% of all votes in this category, comfortably beating eleven other wheels into first place.

    Spinning like a carousel, this large Catherine wheel is driven by four powerful motors starting with a red glow building with golden floss and changing to brilliant bright silver rain.
    Congratulations to Zeus Fireworks on this well deserved win!

    We will be announcing a winner in each category every day for the next fortnight and after we announce the big one - our Best Brand award, we will share all the results with you so you can see where your favourite fireworks and brands placed in our inaugural awards.
    Certificates will be sent to winners once all have been announced.

    I'm not trying to diminish the results, i'm sure it was a worthy winner but surely it skews the results when some brands are being promoted on fb with the owner asking people to vote for their products while others are not being advertised in any way for this competition...

    The awards themselves are being promoted on FB, everyone has the chance to promote their own brand/item, i am sure we are all guilty of using social media to promote/advertise in one way or another, pretty level playing field as far as i am concerned :)

    That's how all public awards work! At least ten companies promoted the awards on their sites/mailing lists over the last month but many more were aware of it happening so it's entirely up to companies to make their customers aware of it or not. It's not rocket science to see that those who highlight the awards to their customers will get more votes, but that's entirely up to them and like I say, that's how every awards that asks for public votes works.

    The winner of the BEST MEDIUM CAKE category in our 2021 firework awards is White Spirit from Prestigious Pyrotechnics which received 33.2% of the public vote.
    White Spirit comprises 49 shots of white-tipped coconut breaks finishing with a spectacular triple volley. It is a perfect example of using pace and timing to create a stunning cake from a single effect.
    Congratulations to Saj at Prestigious Fireworks (Chorlton Fireworks) on this well deserved win!

    Finally one that i've used won, was starting to feel like @BarnOwl :D I think that was possibly the most obvious winner of any category although it can't have won by much.

    The winner of the BEST SMALL CAKE category in our 2021 firework awards is Crown 500 from Zeus Fireworks which received 29.2% of the public vote.
    Stunning is an understatement with this small but powerful 19 shot barrage. Massive silver & red strobing tails bursting into huge breaks of titanium gold palms with white strobes fire high into the sky from this cake over thirty seconds of pure quality.

    Congratulations to Zeus Pyrotechnics on this well deserved win!
