Pyro Shows

2017 CREW PHOTO CONTEST
• TENNESSEE OFFICE •

Anyone who has ever been apart of our many July 4th firework crews can unanimously agree on one thing…it’s not easy work. The hours are long, the sun is hot, and the pressure to deliver is high. However, we never said that you couldn’t have a little fun, too. We think the annual Pyro Shows Crew Photo Contest is one of the best ways to prove that being a pyrotechnician is one of the hardest, but most unique and enjoyable jobs in the world.
Every year for the last three years, we’ve asked our technicians to submit photos of their “July 4th experience” as part of a Pyro Shows crew. We’ve had over 1,000 photos submitted each year. That’s incredible! To help maintain some kind of order to the photo contest, we created four categories and asked our technicians to target their photos to those specific categories.  And now…the 2017 winners are…
