Congratulations to AIM Member Simon Coronel who just took out the top prize for Close Up Magic and is the new North American Champion of FISM! Held in Quebec, where the World Championships of Magic will be held next year, Simon competed against 11 top magicians (you can read all about it here) and made his way to the top 3. These 3, and the top 3 in the Stage category – see pic below) just competed in the final an hour ago, and Simon was voted #1!
This means, in addition to winning this incredibly prestigious award, Simon has a guaranteed entry into the FISM World Championships next year where he will compete for his THIRD FISM Award… a feat no other Australian in history has ever achieved!
Well done and good luck Simon! You always make us proud!
