PyroJam 2023 (official competition discussion topic)
Hi Engineer Cat, there are just too many show submissions to proactively give each competitor feedback. For example, just watching the shows once through last year took about 25 hours! But that doesn’t mean that competitors are stuck wondering why they didn’t get into the finals. We are happy to provide feedback to anyone who reaches out and asks.Engineer Cat

I just want to wish all the other pyrotechs that submitted or will be submitting shows GOOD LUCK. Can’t wait to see what everyone scripted.
With Drews info, auditing positions using the filters worked out great. So I just wanted to share the filtering I used to make sure all the effects are in the correct position so none of us have an issue with entries due to effects being in the wrong positions.
This one seemed to be the easiest way (for me at least) to recognized cues out of position. Pick a group of positions and have the size and subtype next to each other. Filter by the best way you like and just quickly scroll down the list. The items that should not be there will pop out at you.Tim Jameson

Yea I figured it would be difficult to do that but was just curious. That’s cool you guys are willing to provide feedback if asked.
Thank you for all your help!
Just wanted to address the feedback portion of the competition. Please direct any requests for feedback directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com as the folks at Finale do not have anything to do with the judging of the shows. This is done by a group assembled by our company. I will be happy to share feedback from the judges for those who request it, just don’t want Drew getting bombarded with requests. He has enough on his plate haha.
Also, please be patient with us as it will take us quite some time to go through all the shows, score them all, etc before I can even think about giving feedback on individual shows.Marius Colita

Hello! Welcome back ! 1. How do we know that the scripts were sent or received by you? 2 . How do we know they are okay? Do you still check them? Can you give us a confirmation, an email?
Hi Marius, this question was answered here: https://finale3d.com/groups/english/forum/topic/pyrojam-2023-official-discussion-topic/page/5/#post-1490557
The only confirmation is the message displayed directly on the competition submission page. We will contact you if we have any trouble with the WeTransfer link or your show file. Given the number of show submissions and the show submission deadline of March 4, 2023, it’s just not possible for us to check each show to provide individual feedback on whether the show meets all the competition requirements. We would hate to see an excellent show be disqualified because of a rules violation, but we have to rely on competitors to take responsibility for ensuring their shows meet the competition requirements. If you show is not in the top three and therefore doesn’t make it to the live competition, you can reach out for feedback as described in this post: https://finale3d.com/groups/english/forum/topic/pyrojam-2023-official-discussion-topic/page/6/#post-1507551Pyro_51170000

I just received an email from WeTransfer saying “Your files haven’t been downloaded and expire in two days”
Could someone verify that my entry was received correctly?
Hi Eric, we received your competition entry on March 4th and your show has already been successfully downloaded.Tim Rancourt
