Grand Prix du Honneur

The most prestigious award at the annual PCAM Convention is The Grand Prix du Honneur which acknowledges exceptional achievement in magic. The Grand Prix is not awarded every year, in fact – it has only been awarded six times in the history of the PCAM. In order to receive this honour an act must receive over 95 points (out of 100) during their act in one of the General Contest Categories, as listed above. Here are the recipients:

Grand Prix Winners
•2012 Michael Dardant
•2000 Shawn Farquhar
•1988 Roy Shank
•1983 Kevin James
•1980 Michi Hasegawa
•1978 Patrick Martin (Double Grand Prix for both Close-Up Magic and Stage Magic)
