    Hey guys, hope everyone is having a safe start to the weekend as we are currently trying to stay indoors due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic. We can all do our part to help prevent the spread of this virus by staying indoors and not putting others at risk. While we are staying indoors, it can give us a lot more free time to put to various things. One thing I've been doing a lot more lately is practicing my magic and cardistry, so we felt that the following challenge would be a fun way to get creative with our time and get through this together!

    We want you to find ANYTHING in the house/apartment you are in right now, and create an effect using those objects. The objects can be literally anything - Paperclips, Pens, USB Drives, Sunglasses, Soda Cans, Xbox Controllers, Pots and pans, etc. Get together a couple of objects and put your mind to the test! The more diverse and creative the effect is, the better!

    If you are wondering, you can use cards if you have them in your room right now. But remember, we are looking for something outside the box and original, so choose wisely!

    Judging criteria is as follows: we are looking for which effect is the most original and creative overall, and we are factoring in performance/execution. Practicality is not a part of the criteria, so it can be an effect that you can perform from only one strict angle. EVERYTHING is fair game, as long as there are no camera cuts/tricks/special editing. Also, one entry per member, so make it count!

    Upload the performance of your created effect to either YouTube, Vimeo, or Instagram (make sure it is public so we can see it during judging), and post the link to your video in response to THIS forum thread by no later than 11:00pm EST tomorrow, Sunday, March 22nd. Once time is up, our panel of judges will go through all submissions and decide on a winner based on the criteria above.

    EDIT: The contest has been extended until tomorrow, Monday, March 23rd at 11:00pm EST. Still have an effect you're working on? You can finish it and submit it and be eligible for judging. Good luck!

    What can you win? 1,000 Elite Points, a deck of Gold Artisans, a deck of Mandarin Monarchs, OMEGA by Max Major, and 2 decks each of our newest playing card releases, (PRODUCT)RED v2 and Hollywood Roosevelt, shipped on the house anywhere in the world! Good luck!

    We will also be giving out 100 Elite Points to every honorable mention that makes this contest incredibly close, so go for it!

    We look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. Start brainstorming!
  2. Good luck!
