The UK has a steeped history of firework use, with fireworks being used to celebrate events, religious festivals and national celebrations for hundreds of years.

Today, millions of fireworks are sold for public use each year in the UK and the quality and innovation of design continues to provide more spectacular yet safer fireworks each year.

With this in mind the UK Firework Alliance in association with the UKFR bring you Firework Awards UK - a celebration of retail fireworks, showcasing the best of the best, shortlisted by experts and enthusiasts with the winners chosen by the wider public. 



The awards process begins in January with a chosen group of firework enthusiasts who are part of the UKFR community nominating dozens of fireworks for each category. The group have been chosen for their vast knowledge of retail fireworks and between them fire thousands of retail (category F2 & F3) fireworks each year across all brands. 

The nomination lists are then whittled down to a shortlist of ten fireworks in each category through several rounds of voting within the judging group. 

The wider public and the UKFR community are then be encouraged to vote for their favourite fireworks from these shortlists via an online voting form and the winners are announced shortly after. 

The main importer of the winning fireworks will receive an award certificate and all winners will feature on this website.
