Does it use a concept created along new or unconventional lines? Does the design convey a feeling of professionalism and creativity? Creative expression is not necessarily practical or easily reproduced.
  • Balloon Manipulation Skills: Was a high degree of difficulty used in the creation of this piece? How precise were the techniques used?
  • Construction: Does the design demonstrate a high quality of work and meet professional standards? Are all mechanics well-hidden, and is there a durable and stable framework (if applicable)? Do special features such as motion, lighting, and illusions work correctly? Has the display been well-constructed?
  • Use of Balloons: Is there an exciting and creative use of balloons in terms of design, color, texture, quality, and finish? Have elements and principles of design been applied and used effectively?
  • Unity & Harmony: Do all the elements appear to belong together, resulting in a strong sense of oneness (a feeling of belonging together)?
