Judge Conference

Hi Judges,

I’m Eddie Mountney, and on behalf of the US – East, I’m excited to invite you all to our region’s next Online Judge Conference!

This conference will be held on Saturday, January 2, 2021, online, beginning at 10:00am.  The conference will include 4 presentations and a short break for lunch (30 min), wrapping up around 2:30pm.

Due to the pandemic, magic judging has become scarce.  Our skills as judges are becoming rusty.  To help counteract this, the theme of this conference will be to refresh us up on our HARD skills, whether you’re a new L1 still learning, or an L2 that hasn’t judged in almost a year, brushing up on our skills will be beneficial.

Please feel free to email me at with any questions or suggestions!

Participants are expected to give each presenter their attention and the respect that they deserve.


Registration and Foil Support

All judges from US – East are welcome to apply, but due to limited foil support, priority will be given to judges in the Eastern PA and surrounding area, which includes the following states: Pennsylvannia, New York, Maryland, New Jersey, and Delaware.

Judge Academy has allotted us to offer attendees a selection of promotional foil cards for up to 60 participants.  These foils are available if you meet the following criteria:

– Register for the conference by applying to this event

– Be a certified (Level 1 or higher) Judge with Judge Academy at the time you apply, or if you certify after applying, email me at

– Be accepted to this event as one of the 60 participants

– Complete 1 feedback form for each presentation (total of 4)



Excellent presenters are an essential element of a successful conference. To that end, we are looking for presenters who are willing to present on this conference’s theme, which is a hard skills refresher as opposed to soft skills.  Some good presentation topics could be: replacements effects, layers, new policy and/or rules changes, difficult IPG calls, etc.  These are only some hard skills topics.  If you have a presentation that you think would be good, then make sure to mention that in your application.  If you are interested in presenting, please email me with your proposal at as soon as possible. Your proposal should include:

– Seminar topic

– Previous experience presenting this or other topics

– Presentation method of preference in the virtual setting (i.e. Discord, ZOOM, Google Meet, etc.)

We will be using discord for this conference.  More information on that will come as the event date approaches.

Get excited to start off the new year with a great conference!  See you there!
