Steve Dickson does a trick called “duck face”.

Ridge magician snags stage magic award

Steve Dickson honoured by the Vancouver Magic Circle at their 2013 gala

Maple Ridge magician Steve Dickson vanished with another award at the Vancouver Magic Circle’s gala this year.

Dickson won the Percy Poole trophy for stage magician of the year.

“This is a great honour,” Dickson says.

“To be judged and voted on by your peers and to come out on top is something I won’t soon forget.”

Dickson has won two other prestigious awards in the past three years.

In 2010, he was crowned the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians champion, and  also won The Magic Circle’s HB MacLean award for close-up magic.

Dickson believes that magic is special – something everyone could use a little more of. He has entertained at weddings, large corporate events and even for Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

• You can follow Steve at or see him at the Terry Fox Theatre, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. for the Give Meaning Variety Show. All proceeds go to typhoon victims in the Philippines.
