Explanation of 'fireworks sports fireworks' where fireworks compete with each other, I have actually experienced judges at fireworks competitions
Some fireworks festivals host firework competitions where fireworks compete for the beauty of fireworks and manufacturing technology. Fireworks of Taiko Fireworks and Tsuchiura National Fireworks Competition, which is held in Daisen city, Akita prefecture, are well known, but competitions are held even in other rural fireworks festivals. Since we had qualifications of fireworks viewers this time, we had the opportunity to serve as the judge of the nationwide fireworks Mahoroba competition in Uda, Nara Prefecture, so we will report it together with how we enjoy the sports fireworks .
Uda City Yonbara Fireworks Festival · National Fireworks Mahoroba Competition
The place is the Hidaru Shimoi Shinbutsu area (Udagawa River paddy field) in Uda City, Nara Prefecture.
On August 5, 2018, to the fireworks display site. The far side of the rice field is the launch place.
This time, I participated as a judge so I was informed to the front row judges' seat. There are 10 judges in all.
Plates with names, binders, ballpoint pens are available in their own seats.
In the binder, there was a description of scoring method and a scoring chart.
At 7:30 pm, the fireworks festival starts. It is said that the competition will be held in the middle of the fireworks festival, so if you are watching fireworks at the judges' seat ... ...
As for "How to judge fireworks competition, there is explanation from fireworks appreciation viewer ", it is decided to explain the method of judging fireworks.
◆ What is a good fireworks at the competition? At the competition, "What is being competed in fireworks? What is good fireworks?", But mainly, "what you can see in good balance " " technical "Is it altitude or not? " "Score is attached considering" expression power such as themeality and artisticism ". This is an example, the items to be evaluated and the distribution of points etc. are different depending on the Games.
As to the "looking in balance" professionally, when looking at in detail, "sitting" as to whether the fireworks bulbs that have been opened are open at the rising vertex or not, "the tray" of the overall shape of the fireworks constitute a tray It can be separated from the direction of the stars (glowing grains) and "shoulder" representing momentum, "disappearing mouth" representing the state of fireworks disappearing.
However, it is difficult to judge individual items such as "sitting" "tray" in a short time by momentary incident when seeing fireworks actually going up. In fact, it is important to balance the impression throughout, such as whether it is a round circle, whether it is size, whether fireworks of a type not drawing a circle are evenly scattered, how to disappear or not, etc. As long as you attach a score, it's okay.
As for "whether technically advanced or not", as fireworks opens, fireworks with concentric circles that can be seen many times, the more core, the more technical and labor is required.
Other things, such as special things like hundred flowers and small balls open all at once, spreading as if drawing threads in all directions, with many colors, many color changes, technology and work Because fireworks that I think are "fancy fireworks", I will score points with a feeling that the score is high. In addition, there are perspectives to see techniques of blending powder, such as whether the color is dark and bright, combination of colors, but this is a part not known unless it is an expert, so do not mind do not mind.
With regard to "theme nature and artistic nature", considering the theme of "whether the fireworks that actually hit the image match the images of fireworks and comments on the program" and the impression as a work of art etc, score .
We explained the story and so on, the competition started.
At the competition, fireworks as a reference will be launched first. It is common to use this standard ball as fireworks of 70% of the full score, and then comparing it with the standard ball and placing a score afterwards.
After the reference ball is launched, a competition ball is launched from the announcement such as the name of the competition ball and comments. Itoi Fire Corporation "Ruby's Brilliance"
While comparing with standard balls, we add points and write them in the examination table. Approximately 30 seconds is felt quickly until the next competition ball is launched, but you have to score.
This will be repeated afterwards. Nomura Fireworks Industry Co., Ltd. "Kirakira Kaleidoscope"
After the launch of all the competition balls, the examination table was collected by the staff.
There were 15 fireworks operators entered in this competition in all. The rank will be decided by the total score by 10 judges. Below, we will introduce the winning works of the 4th National Fireworks Mahoroba Competition.

In this competition, we also conduct general net voting in addition to the ranking based on judges' scores, and the first prize is given the "Mahoroba Award" as a special prize. This time, "Core deposit crown" of Kishu fireworks limited company won.
The competition was over and I enjoyed the rest of the fireworks program while being released from tension.
