Each contestant receives a maximum of two minutes to entertain the
audience, twist a sculpture, or do anything a balloon entertainer might do
on the street in a performance situation.
Everyone in the audience (except contestants) will gets a score sheet to
give each act a 1 to 10 score. It is suggested they score by how much they
enjoyed each 2 minutes bit but is up to them. Going over 2 minutes is
disrespectful to the other contestants and it is reflected in the score.
Performers have a maximum of 7 minutes to entertain the audience. The
focus is on balloons but any props may be used. The purpose of this contest
is to determine the best stage performers.

The judges consist of balloon professionals and lay persons.
Scoring is broken down into:
Presentation, up to 40 points.
Technical skills, up to 25 points.
Originality, up to 15 points.
Use of balloons, up to 20 points.
