A Magician’s Magician: Best in the Business

James Cielen was awarded the highly coveted Gold Medal International Award of Excellence by the International Brotherhood of Magicians. The Gold Medal recognizes exceptional ability in the performance of magic. It is one of the most prestigious magic awards and is rarely awarded. In fact, before Cielen, the Gold Medal had only been awarded on two other occasions. 

Highest Award in Magic

In presenting the Gold Medal, the judges applauded Cielen’s exceptional technical ability as well as his impeccable style, presentation, and showmanship. The winning of this coveted Award establishes James Cielen as both a “magician’s magician” and one of the most talented and exciting performers on stage today. 

In Las Vegas, James Cielen was voted the Grand Prize winner of the People’s Choice Award. The Siegfried and Roy Golden Lion Award for the People’s Choice is one of the most prominent awards in the world of magic. To be judged worthy of this honor, Cielen competed against top magicians from Japan, Europe, South America, and the United States. His stellar performance in front of sold-out audiences of laypeople and fellow magicians in Las Vegas once again establishes him as both an incredible illusionist and a premier entertainer.
