Stage magic, illusions, close-up magic, and even mentalism are all welcome. Three prizes will be awarded by a panel of three judges, headed by magician and Legends' owner Allan Cornia, joined by two non-magician judges. Entertainment value will be the primary criteria used by the judges to award the $100 first prize, $50 second prize and $25 third prize. In addition, the audience will determine the winner of a $100 "People's Choice" award.
Logan deceptionist Richard Hatch of the Hatch Academy of Magic and Music will MC the event and perform during the judging phase. Magicians from Salt Lake City and Idaho have already announced their intention to compete.

There will be a $10 cover charge for audience members, but there is no entry fee and the cover charge is waived for anyone competing.
