On Wednesday, July 12, we announced several changes to the competition rules:

1. There is now a single competition instead of two divisions.
2. The judging will be done by a panel of four respected magicians.
3. Judges will decide on a winner and also on a separate award in a special category like originality, showmanship, technical skill, or other area, based on the performances they see.
4. The audience will vote for People’s Choice.
