at the Hippodrome de Compiègne

With the support of the city of Compiègne

The Masters of Fire,
an incredible show

On the way to the Silver Master!

Inspired by successful television shows, which highlight, from one year to the next, the talent of craftsmen who deserve to be known (and recognized) by their know-how alone (cooks, pastry chefs, etc.) , the Fire Masters offer its public the opportunity to elect, three years in a row, the finalist pyrotechnicians who will meet, the fourth year, in the “super final”, in search of the Gold Master! In 2022, find the best pyrotechnicians on the continent who have shown a certain interest in this competition like no other and who are already giving you an appointment in 2025 to award the Gold Master to the "best" of them. !

Contest rules

The rules of the contest are simple! The budget, the theme and the time of the show are identical to each of the companies.


For fifteen minutes, each of the competitors will have to express their pictorial and musical vision of the imposed theme and allow all the spectators to project themselves into their universe.


The Jury, made up of personalities and members of the general public (drawn at the beginning of the evening), will have to judge the general aesthetics of the show, the emotion it provides, its synchronization and the diversity of the choreographed products.


The general public is also invited to vote. Thanks to the site, it  designates the pyrotechnician who according to them deserves to win the public prize.

For the sake of fairness, the running order of the competitors is determined by a drawing of lots which takes place at the press conference preceding the event.
