Merlin Awards - It's become an obsession...

I’m currently researching the history of THE MERLIN AWARDS and I’m trying to find some information.

The IMS doesn’t keep an accurate listing of all of the Merlin Awards they have presented over the years, but so far I have discovered:

  • 10 pre 1998
  • 7 in 1998
  • 20 in 1999
  • 6 in 2000
  • 3 in 2001
  • 4 in 2002
  • 3 in 2003
  • 6 in 2004
  • 6 in 2005
  • 4 in 2006
  • 4 in 2007
  • 19 in 2008
  • 30 in 2009
  • 27 in 2010


I am missing quite a few though so I was hoping readers of the blog might be able to help fill in the gaps.

If you can, please email me at Tim@MagicUnlimited.com or just post your responses below 

Thanks!
