Lifetime Achievement Award 2018

This award recognizes the exceptional commitment to magic by the dedicated efforts of an individual over a lifetime. It comes with an engraved iPad, and a prize of $15,000 from the Slaight Family Foundation. It has been a privilege to honour past recipients—Johnny Thompson, Ton Onosaka and Max Maven—for their lifelong contributions to the art.

It is with great pleasure that we name Dr. Edwin Dawes as this year’s recipient.

And, that's a wrap.

Thank you for joining us on this week-long celebration of magic. We enjoyed your shares, comments and feedback. We are delighted that honourees also received their much-deserved praise from all of you, too!

Congratulations once again, to this year’s recipients: Nicholas Wallace, Noah Levine, College of Magic, Michael Carbonaro and Dr. Edwin Dawes. It is an honour to recognize each recipient for their outstanding achievements in the pursuit of the impossible.

Most of all, we send our deepest thanks and gratitude to the Slaight Family—and in particular, to Allan Slaight—for making these awards possible and for sharing wonder.
