The Grand Master of Magic Award is a lifetime achievement award presented by the Brotherhood of Auckland Magicians on behalf of the magicians in New Zealand. The criteria of the award is as follows—
Its purpose is to honour those magicians who are acknowledged by their fellow magicians to be masters of the art and craft of magic. The recipients first and foremost must be performers of a high standard. In addition they might be originators of magical effects, or administrators giving time and expertise to running societies and conventions. They could be consistent competition winners, or have an international standing, or be known only in the New Zealand setting. But above all they are people who have served magic well, have graced our art, and made a special contribution over many years.
Any nomination must also be measured against the standard achieved by the previous recipients.
