A total of 85 shows from across the country competed for the honor, with only seven magic shows and three acrobatic shows winning prizes. Time and Tide was the first and only show from Shandong province that has received the prize in 23 years.

Jining has been making efforts to promote the high-quality development of its creative arts sector over the past few years. Many local art works have won national recognition, while the city's arts scenes have been promoted nationwide by mainstream media outlets.
