Event Information


Experienced team members capable of leading on the MagicFest floor are crucial to running an excellent event, and CFB Events is excited to invite you to join our onsite leadership team.  This application covers leadership positions over a three month period and provides more stability and predictability for leadership positions at MagicFests from October through December 2019. Please take note that ALL leadership positions at MagicFest will be filled through this CORE application; there will NOT be an opportunity to apply for a leadership position through the individual event application.


This document includes CORE qualities we outlined earlier this year:


This Leadership application will close at 11:59 PM (23:59) PDT on Monday, June 24th.


Note: This application is not completed through Judge Apps. Please use the link at the end of this application to join our onsite leadership team!


2-3 Days


This application offers the option of confirming TWO days at the leadership pay rate and ONE day at the standard for each event. If you are only available for two days, that’s not a problem; just apply for two days, and you will still be eligible for leadership compensation for those two days.  For MagicFest+ Richmond two, three and four day acceptances are available with the default being 4 day acceptances with two days leading.


If we can’t bring you on for a specific MagicFest through this application, we would still like to encourage you to apply through the event specific application!



Culturally, leadership is more than a title and level. As a leader at a CFBE event, you are expected to invest in your team members, collaborating with them, helping one another to grow and to gain the valuable experience that each MagicFest offers.  


Part and parcel with cultural leadership are the tasks and duties required of leaders at a CFBE event.  As part of our leadership team you may be asked to:



The Leadership Team at CFBE Events have a typical shift time of 10-12 hours  There is a one hour lunch and at least one additional break during your shift.




We are happy to offer Leaders who join our onsite team through this application the following compensation rates (this does not include Thursday Set-Up). Please note that default compensation rates include booster display boxes from the most recent Standard set. Successful applicants may select an all-cash option prior to each GP you attend if that is prefered. Compensation rates that do not include boxes are listed in brackets after the default rates:

Daily Lead Compensation

Daily Non-Lead Compensation

3 Days

$375 + 2 boxes


$250 + 1 box


$1,000 + 5 boxes


Monetary compensation for events outside of the US may be converted from USD into local currencies at the Google exchange rate. Please note that the conversion rate will be locked in three (3) weeks prior to the event. Contractors may choose to keep the payment in USD or request any other currency available through PayPal; all payments for events or contractors outside of the United States will be processed through PayPal.   Payment for US Contractors at US events will be by Check.


A survey to accepted staff will be sent out seven (7) weeks prior to each event. That survey will allow you to:

Please remember that failure to fill out this survey will result in the default compensation of boxes and in the local currency.

Leaders selected through this application are also able to apply for Thursday Set-Up at the standard rate of $150 and two booster boxes in the US, €125 and two booster boxes in Europe.
