This year’s theme was The Legend of Bridges and each team's displays were structures from their home countries.

It was the third time an Italian team won the contest after victories in 2011 and 2012.

In 2013, the US team Melrose Pyrotechnics took first spot. Canada’s Davis Whysall took the top prize in 2008, while China’s Liuyang Dancing won in 2009 and France’s Jacques Couturier Organisation won in 2010. — VNS
