Stage Magic Competition | Percy Poole Trophy

The Percy Poole Trophy is awarded in recognition of excellence in stage magic by a junior member. No effect or routine designed to be performed close up will be permitted. The spirit of this competition is to encourage growth in the fields of school assembly, banquet, club, revue and cruise ship style magic. The trophy was first awarded in 1976 and was replaced and updated in 2006 by then President, Mike Norden.

Please read the General Competition Rules prior to participation in this contest.

For more information or to enter this competition, please contact our Awards and Competition Chairman, Bryn Williams. Please note that you must register at least 24 hours in advance.

Please note: The Vancouver Magic Circle owns this trophy and it must be kept safe for its preservation. If you win this competition and can demonstrate a need for the physical possession of the trophy, please complete the Trophy Lending Agreement and submit it to the Executive Board. Qualification to borrow trophies ultimately lies at the discretion of the Executive Board and will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis at the following Executive Meeting or at the will of the Executive Board.
