On May 27, 2017, as part of the closing events of the 44th Magic Collectors Weekend in Montreal, we presented this year's Allan Slaight Awards.

The Allan Slaight Awards were instituted by the Slaight Family Foundation to honour Allan Slaight, a media mogul and philanthropist with a lifelong passion for magic, and to recognize outstanding achievements in the pursuit of the impossible. Each year, a total of $50,000 in prizes is distributed across five categories. The Allan Slaight Awards also include an iPad with each recipient's name engraved on the award to commemorate the occasion. 

Congratulations to this year's recipients:

MAX MAVEN

JOHN LOVICK

Due to performance conflicts, Derek Delgaudio and Eric Leclerc were unable to attend the presentations.
