Fray’s Fabulous Fireworks
Alright, full disclosure: I run a year-round fireworks store, so I was extra critical of your item.
My biggest qualm with the item was that it extinguished what little thunder the alchemical weapons & fireworks have.
My biggest surprise was your spell requirements. Specifically, the absence of pyrotechnics, snapdragon fireworks, or sound burst.
I liked the random factor, but felt that it could have been written differently to limit the SAK-ness.
There are dozens of firework types in the world, and this item only exhibits skyrockets. There are also an immense variety of visual and sound effects possible, but the item sticks to describing the shots as colored patterns. It also did not help that there was a tent down the street from my shop this past July called "Fran's Fabulous Fireworks", though I suspect that this was sheer coincidence.
I encourage you to continue to go for the riskier, creative entries in future years though. If you refine your mechanics proficiency, I'm sure you'll do well.
I am working feverishly to safely disassemble all of the Top 223 and inspect them for defects. There have only been between 189 and 300 injuries so far, most of which were the consequence of explosive runes and symbol spells. I wish I had more accurate numbers, but our secretary has been subject to a sepia snake sigil.

A deal so good, you can't let go! 5 out of 5 stars.
So I've collected all of the devices that drop Bags of Holding into Portable Holes and vice-versa. I have named it the RiptRiftic Bomb. Worst case scenario, we actually need to use this apparatus.
In the future, I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the RiptRiftic Bomb. Perhaps two-thirds of the people of the planet will be killed though.
Please do not make me make another.
There's only a week left until my contract expires. Just gotta survive one week. Please don't kill me...
