Starring the future of magic

Each year The Melbourne Magic Festival hosts two categories of The Australian Junior Championships: The Stage Magic Championship, and The Close Up Magic Championship.

Past champions have gone on to present their own solo shows both here and at other festivals, while others have made TV appearances and even travelled overseas to represent Australia in Magic contests in Las Vegas, Shanghai and even in The Illusionists on Broadway.

Our Championships are open to anyone aged under 18 years on the day of the competition and are residents of Australia.
