From Shawn Farquhar, International President:

I love contests... no really. So here's one that I think will be lots of fun. I'll award the winner over $250 worth of awesome magic and a "Keep Calm and Perform Magic" t-shirt. So how do you win? Post a video of you doing a magic effect on you YouTube and then share it with us on the IBM FaceBook page. Oh the trick has to have been published as an effect that is taught in The Linking Ring. You also have to include in the video the following.

1) Mention you're an IBM member (yes this is only for IBM members)
2) Mention which Volume and Issue it appears in The Linking Ring
3) Don't explain the effect in the video

*we will accept videos entered before February 21, 2015. Then we will have a voting process to find our winner.

Game on...

This sounds like fun Skip! I've never done anything like this, so I think it would be a nice change of pace! Smile

Hello Skip, I was one of the entrants in this contest. The deadline for videos was February 21, 2015. Yet, as of today (May 8, 2015) there has still been no announcement of a winner. Do you have any further information that you can share?

Best Magical Regards,

Mark Williams

Shawn has been touring the world's airport. I'll try to corner him and find out. Hang in there...

Just in the door from touring the world. We had very little interest in the contest. A whopping three people competed! It was rather disappointing, but I did make the offer and will honor it for sure since those who did compete did go to a lot of effort. It was my intention to have a secondary stage of the competition to allow the public to view all the video's and vote.

The videos are:

https://youtu.be/fdIVFeaevHA

https://youtu.be/nMivq4zxjC0

The contestants were:

S. Patrick ( 15 views / 0 Likes)
Mark Williams (29 views / 0 Likes)
Matthew Jones (275 views / 6 Likes)

I will make this post over on the Facebook Page and ask people to LIKE the one of their choice.
At the end of May we will see who has the most LIKES and declare a winner.

Cheers,

-shawn

Hi Everyone,

Here's the final tally on the video contest.

R. Piamonte ( 115 views / 2 Likes )
S. Patrick ( 149 views / 14 Likes)
Mark Williams (87 views / 5 Likes)
Matthew Jones (353 views / 8 Likes)

So it looks to be a clear winner with S. Patrick who performed a variation of "Par Optic Vision" from the March 2014 Linking Ring Magazine.

Now if S. Patrick will contact me at shawn@magichampion.com I will arrange to send him a prize package with over $250 worth of magic and a Keep Calm and Perform Magic t-shirt.

Cheers,

-shawn farquhar

The keep Calm and Perform Magic t-shirt is worth more than the rest of the stuff put together! With so much stuff to choose from in all those linking rings, people probably couldn't decide in time which to perform. I need to do some research myself and find one of the great items that NO ONE is doing (because it was hidden in plain sight in the Linking Ring!)
