The world’s first Basking Contest was held at Haeundae Beach at BIMF held in Busan, Korea at the end of June 2019. It was a great success with many spectators. This event is also an official event in Busan City. The current mayor of Busan was shown magic at the 1st anniversary greeting.
The word “FISM” is an organization’s name. It is not the official name of an event. In various occasions, people had used the term “FISM” as the name of the magic events, and they were incorrect. Please note that in Asia, event names and organization names should be used accurately. Please make sure that there is no confusion in names and event titles.
The World Championship of Magic Contest, which is to be held by FISM once every three years, shall be called “FISM World Championships of Magic” (“WCM”). For example, the FISM contests held in Busan, Korea last time was named “FISM WCM 2018”.
The continental qualifying contest to be held in Asia shall be called “FISM Asian Championships of Magic” (“FISM ACM”). “FISM ASIA” is the name of the organization that manages Asian matters on behalf of FISM (International), and is not a name of a convention/ contest. Although it is easy to understand the term “FISM ASIA’s contest”, yet “FISM ASIA” is not the proper term of the event. Therefore, the last ACM held was FISM ACM 2017 (Gifu).
In other words, the next FISM ACM will be “FISM ACM 2020 (in XX)” (XX is the name of the city).
