PAINS FIRST COMPANY TO WIN MONTREAL

August 2007

Pains have become the first UK company to win the Golden Jupiter award at Montreal's International Firework Festival.

In the 23rd year of the prestigious competition, pyrotechnicians from eight countries competed for the coveted prizes: the Gold, Silver and Bronze Jupiter awards.

Over the nine shows spanning six weeks through June and July, more than 2.5 million visitors viewed the displays from vantage points across Montreal.

Pains faced intense competition from major firework companies from Spain, Mexico, China, USA, Canada, France and Germany. No English company had previously been ranked in the top three and this was only the fifth time that a British company had even been invited to compete. Entry to the L'International Des Feux is by invitation only and is restricted to display companies that have a proven track record both nationally and internationally of staging large scale firework spectaculars.
