The Cardistry-Con Awards, or "Sybils", is an international competition that recognizes the skill, creativity and showmanship of cardists from all over the world. Five unique awards are presented each year for the following categories: Deck of the Year, Flourish of the Year, Cardistry Video of the Year, Breakout Cardist of the Year, and Cardistry Champion of the Year. The purpose of these awards is to advance the art by pushing the limits of skill and creativity of cardists and recognizing their achievements and contributions.
Anyone could be eligible for the first four categories. A public vote is gathered near the conference date narrowing it down to the five most nominated. From these five, our organizing body and headlining cardists of the year vote for the winner.
To compete for the title of Cardistry Champion of the Year, a call for entries will happen in March. A panel of judges, including past champions and elite cardists in the community, will determine the finalist and setup the rules of the championship trials. The trials will last a few months, with each round eliminating cardists from the competition until only two finalists remain. These two cardists are flown to Cardistry-Con for a live viewing of their final round and the champion determined.
Each recipient of an award is presented with a Sybil, the cardistry equivalent to an Oscar.
