The Jury Prize and the Audience Award will reward the best shows at the end of the competition. The members of the jury, chaired by the Mayor of Monaco or his representative, will evaluate pyromusical shows according to specific scoring criteria.

Again this year, the public will also be able to vote on the website www.monac-feuxdartifice.mc the day after each show. The Public Prize will be awarded to the fireworks display that obtained the highest rating from Internet users, at the end of the competition.
