The Slaight Awards

Nominations are now open
January 12, 2023

Happy New Year! We hope your year is off to a magical start.

Magicana has many projects on the go and we are very excited as we make preparations to share the news. Keep your eyes fixed on this news page, or on social media to hear the latest.

First up: it’s January!

And, that means the Allan Slaight Awards are now open. These awards recognize outstanding contributions to the art of magic in five categories. The Slaight Family Foundation gives away an astonishing $50,000 per year to acknowledge shining stars, magic makers and wonder sharers, all in an effort to support and encourage this wonderful art of magic.

So, come on, magic friends…. Tell us about an exciting up-and-coming magician you know or have seen. Or, tell us about a fantastic magician who should be recognized for outstanding contributions either as a performer, or from a lifetime of contributions to magic. Maybe you saw an unbelievable performance last year? Or, did you read or learn or gain special insight from a book, podcast or streaming service? Tell us. We want to know.

To make your nomination, simply visit this Allan Slaight Awards page and fill in the blanks. If you run into any sticky spots, just drop us a line at and we will be happy to help!

Be part of the sharing wonder movement and nominate someone today!

Good luck to all nominees. Recipients will be announced online in June 2023.
