Show Us Your Best Work

Inspiration ›  Balloon Competitions ›  Show Us Your Best Work

We challenged balloon artists from all over the world to share their most popular figure with Balloon Magic – the Magazine readers. Ten winners were selected to move on to Round 2. Each of these winning twisters submitted a step-by-step video of their submission and five winners were selected. The grand prize winner, Vadim Shushkanov, CBA, will be flown to Pioneer Balloon Company headquarters in Wichita, KS, USA for his own Balloon Magic – the Magazine photo shoot!
