The Allan Slaight Awards recognize outstanding work in the pursuit of the impossible. Since 2015, the Slaight Family Foundation has given away $50,000 each year to acknowledge individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the art of magic.
There are five separate categories that make up the awards: Lifetime Achievement; Sharing Wonder for exceptional work in the performance or presentation of magic; Sharing Secrets, recognizing individuals or organizations that share magic within the community; and two Rising Star awards that single out up-and-coming talents in Canada and internationally.
We are thrilled to announce that nominations for works completed in 2019 are now open. Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to magic? Have you seen an exceptional talent who is a rising star? Perhaps you have experienced an out-of-this-world performance? Here’s your chance to recognize them! Submit that magician’s or organization’s name as a nominee!
