Bursary of £1,000 to benefit magicians under the age of 25 in the advancement of playing card magic. The Magic Circle write: The Magic Circle Foundation is delighted to announce a new bursary initiative proposed by The Worshipful Company of Makers of Playing Cards. The Makers of Playing Cards Charity, the Charitable arm of the Worshipful Company of Makers of Playing Cards, has received a £5,000 legacy from our Past Master Chris Latham MMC, and it has been agreed that this be spent over the next five years on an annual bursary of £1,000 to benefit magicians under the age of 25 in the advancement of playing card magic.


We are inviting applications for the bursary, known as The Makers of Playing Cards Chris Latham Card Magic Award. The bursary has a wide remit: The award need not be made for the benefit of an individual magician under the age of 25, but could be for a group of young magicians, say by running a masterclass for which those under 25 shall have free admission. Similarly, the advancement in card magic need not relate only to performance, but might include archival research undertaken by a young person preparatory to a thesis. The beneficiary of the bursary will be determined each year by a panel of five, of whom two will be nominated by the Makers of Playing Cards and three by The Magic Circle.


The Makers of Playing Cards will normally be represented by the Master for that year and by the Charity Liaison Partner. If you would like to apply for the prize, or know of a suitable recipient of the bursary, please send a statement outlining how it advances the art of card magic, in 500 words or fewer, and email it to by 30th June 2019. The recipient does not need to be a Member of The Magic Circle or the Young Magicians Club. The winner of the bursary will be announced at The Magic Circle’s annual Awards Ceremony on Sunday 1st September 2019. 25.5.19
