International Rising Star 2021

Our next category celebrates emerging talent on an international scale. This year, we are very pleased to recognize the artistry of a magician who pushes performance boundaries and seeks to explore the mystery of magic.

The Allan Slaight International Rising Star Award acknowledges outstanding work by an up-and-coming magician and comes with a prize of $5,000 from the Slaight Family Foundation—and it also includes an iPad to commemorate the occasion. Past recipients of this award are: Henry Vargas of Brazil, Jorge Blass of Spain, Edward Hilsum of Great Britain, Noah Levine of the United States, Ding Yang of China, and Diego Vargas of Costa Rica.

We are delighted to add BILLY KIDD of Great Britain, to the growing international list of dynamic performers.

Discover more about this highly-engaging entertainer. Watch how she thrives in the organic, and often unpredictable, environment working as a street magician. Billy’s courageous curiosity to continually experiment, and to reach further, makes her a true international rising star.

More to come

Com’on back tomorrow! On Wednesday, we will introduce you to the Sharing Secrets Award recipient. See you then!
