The fireworks teams from France and Italy have been selected to compete in the final night of the Da Nang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF) 2023, the organization board announced Sunday.

Da Nang's Vice Chairwoman Ngo Thi Kim Yen, who is also head of the organization board, said the jury found it difficult to choose the two teams for the final as all the eight teams have shown endless creativity in their eye-catching fireworks performances which left a deep impression on the audience.

Composer Nguyen Duc Trinh, chairman of the Vietnam Musicians' Association, a member of the jury, said the French and Italian teams combined music and fireworks in an artistic and smooth form, and their fireworks displays are very consistent with the rhythm and the emotion of the music.

According to the draw result, the Italian team will perform first, and the French team's display will close the DIFF 2023.

This year, the organization board of DIFF 2023 has decided to double the prize value. The champion will receive a prize of $20,000, while the runner-up will receive $10,000.

Additionally, two sub-prizes worth $3,000 each will be presented to the most creative team and the team that receives the most votes from the audience.

The final night will be broadcast live on VTV1 channel of Vietnam Television at 8 p.m. on July 8.
