Thank you to all our participating contestants.

The Top 16 entries will be announced on April 15th.

Our goal with the CCC is to put a spotlight on the best cardists in the world. The winner of this year’s competition will get $2500, a free trip to Cardistry-Con, hang out with his/her favorite cardists for an entire weekend, and earn a bunch of awesome cardistry swag in the process. Here's what happens next:

  1. Our judges are currently looking through almost 200 audition videos for this year’s CCC. On April 15th, we will announce their joint selections for the Top 16 cardists out of all of those entries.

  2. Those Top 16 cardists will be paired up against each other in a bracketed battle format, and the contestants will compete in elimination-style rounds against each other until only 2 cardists remain.

  3. Those 2 finalists will be flown to Portland, Oregon for Cardistry-Con 2019, and their final videos will be screened for the first time live at the con, where the audience will vote for which final video they preferred. The cardist will the most votes will then be crowned Cardistry-Con Chamption 2019.
