And, the winner is…

1 Mar

On behalf of our program sponsors, Kent Wong and the Canadian Association of Magicians, we are delighted and thrilled to announce that we have a winner for the Tony Eng Youth Fund CAM contest.

The opportunity to win a free trip to the 2010 CAM in Kitchener-Waterloo drew several fine applications from young magicians from Western Canada. We were impressed with the quality of the submissions and the judges reported that it was difficult to select just one.

But, there can only be one winner.

The first round of (blind panel) judging drew three finalists and those final three were subjected to a second round of scrutiny by judges. It was close, but after much consideration we have determined our winner.

Congratulations to Miss Jennifer Antonio of Winnipeg, Manitoba. This 15-year-old aspiring young magician wrote a compelling and articulate application, which edged her into the winner’s circle.

Jennifer has won a free trip to the CAM convention which includes return airfare and ground transportation, hotel accommodations and convention registrations for herself and for her father who will be accompanying this young lady on her first big convention. We are honoured to have her represent Magicana’s TEYF as our inaugural winner for the CAM contest.

Read from her submission and find out more about the judges and the contest on our Tony Eng Youth Fund webpage.

Thank you to all of our applicants. You did a great job and we thank you for your very thoughtful applications!

Attention Central and Eastern Canadian young magicians: we will be conducting a reciprocal contest for the 2011 CAM convention which will be held in Vancouver, BC. Check it out! Prepare those submissions now!
