Hi, I am a manager of this contest.
Thanks for creating this topic page!

We introduce main purpose of this contest below.

Around 600 A.D., black powder was invented in China and the fireworks culture began. Initially, it was used for military purposes, but gradually the firecracker culture was born, and later, with the development of science and technology after the 18th century, and various kinds of fireworks appeared.
And now, fireworks are about to evolve with digital technology. Fireworks that are set off using software synchronized with music have become popular at fireworks shows all over the country. And, at the same time, digital technology (example FWsim) is creating a new art field “Simulation fireworks” now.
We sincerely hope that many people will be interested in simulation fireworks at this contest and it will make the fireworks culture developed further.

We are looking forward to your entries!
If there is anything we can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact us.
