Why Entering Competitions is a Good Idea

Get recognised.
Competitions are a great place to get your name out there, and to showcase your act on a national and international stage. Who knows what opportunities may arise?

Get experience.
Many great magic acts were developed initially for a competition act. It can serve as great motivation to get creative and make something amazing.

Get feedback.
We have made an effort to ensure that all competition acts will receive their breakdown of score, as well as general feedback from the judges. It's not often you get feedback from world leading magicians!

Become a part of history.
Apart from being titled a national champion, the NZ magic community have a number of national trophies which could soon have your name on them. You can view all national trophies and cups HERE!

Plus, it doesn't look too shabby on a resume either.

Judging Criteria Released!

Haven't Registered?

We have been overwhelmed with the response and feedback we've received regarding our line-up. With over 100 registrations at the time of the earlybird cut-off, we've had to place a limit on the number of registrations we can accept. We certainly expect this to be a sell-out event so don't miss out.

REGISTER ONLINE NOW - it only takes 2 minutes!

Accommodation Filling Up Fast

Due to the overwhelming number of registrants, accommodation at the James Cook is also filling up fast. The hotel has set aside a limited number of rooms at the special convention rate, so make sure not to miss out on this great deal.

To secure the special convention rate via online booking, you must follow the booking link on the ACCOMMODATION PAGE of our website.

If you want to get the special rate for dates outside of the convention, you must call the hotel (0800 275 337) and ask for the "Wellington Magic Convention Discount".
