Artistic Figure Categories are judged by the Twist and Shout attendees.
Each attendee will get one vote in each category. There are no rules
regarding subject, types of balloons, or use of non-balloon materials.
Judges consider good technique, attention
to detail, uniqueness of subject material, style of presentation, and more.
The stage competition is judged by a panel of seven judges selected by the
Twist & Shout organizers. Judges are selected based on their knowledge
and experience in the areas of twisting and entertainment. They look for
presentation, twisting skill, use of balloons in the show and audience
