- Golden Vestal: every 4 years, the fireworks awarded a Silver Vestal or a Jury Prize in previous years can compete for this title. The next Golden Vestal takes place this year.

There is also the annual Audience Award, awarded by the audience. The Audience Award allows all festival spectators to participate freely in the competition.

Cleaning up the Bay of Cannes

Since 2005, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès has been committed to cleaning up the bay and the seabed during the Pyrotechnics Festival. From the first fire of the festival, a first boat equipped with long-range projectors goes out for 2 hours to collect waste on the surface. The next day, two divers went out again to collect the waste on the seabed.
