The Fédération Internationale des Sociétés Magiques (FISM) World Championship of Magic is the most prestigious event in the world of magic.

FISM features several categories, including stage magic, close-up magic, manipulation, mentalism, and more. Competitors are judged on various criteria such as technique, originality, and showmanship.


The most prestigious award, the Grand Prix, is given to the overall best performer, recognizing their exceptional talent and dedication to the art of magic but its not always awarded!
