Fireworks Photo & Video Contest

This 4th of July, participate in Spirit of ’76 Fireworks’ annual Fireworks Photo & Video Contest!

Contest details are published in June each year and the entry deadline is a couple weeks after Independence Day. Prizes typically include wholesale fireworks credit redeemable at Spirit of ’76 as well as ’76 SWAG (t-shirts, cups, etc.) and major bragging rights.

Multiple winners are chosen for the Photo and Video categories. Only high quality entries that follow the current year’s submission guidelines will be considered.

Tips for High-Quality Entries

Each year we get hundreds of contest entries! Set your submission(s) up for success by considering the following tips.

  • Use a tripod. When in doubt, avoid blurry or shaky photos and videos by using a tripod or stabilizer. Make sure your subject is in focus.
  • Consider submission categories. We especially love entries that go beyond just fireworks. People enjoying fireworks, people selling fireworks, display set-up and highlights – get creative!
  • Short & sweet video entries preferred. If you’re submitting video, make sure it follows the guidelines on length. Highlights of your fireworks display or pyromusical are great.

Remember: only high quality entries that follow the current year’s submission guidelines will be considered.
