Canadian Rising Star 2022

June 20, 2022

We are delighted to start the Allan Slaight Awards 2022 announcement this week! As mentioned in our previous post, the Slaight Family Foundation has made a special accommodation so we can celebrate TWO Sharing Secret recipients! More on that later this week…

Today is about celebrating the exceptional talents of a Canadian Rising Star. The award acknowledges outstanding work by emerging Canadian magicians, and comes with a prize of $5,000 from the Slaight Family Foundation, and an engraved iPad to commemorate the occasion.

Past recipients of this award include Mahdi Gilbert, Luc Langevin, Eric Leclerc, Nick Wallace, Carisa Hendrix, The Sentimentalists: Mysterion and Steffi Kay, and Jonah Babins.

This year we are delighted to add NEIL CROSWELL to this bright list of rising stars. Watch the award video and meet this Toronto-based performer who has successfully turned what was a childhood hobby into a busy, thriving career as a touring illusionist.


We have four more categories to announce and FIVE more recipients to come! 

See you tomorrow when we share the name of this year’s International Rising Star.
