There was a post on Facebook by Andy Fong about the upcoming 2015 World Memory Championship, Including Mention of 2,000,000 RMB in prize money (about $320,000 USD).
We are happy to announce that the 24th World Memory Championship will be again hosted in China in December 2015. The planned venue will be in Sichuan, the most legendary and historical place of China. Sichuan is famous for its world-renowned cuisine and beautiful landscape, for which the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, had even made a special visit last year.
The prize money of the 24th WMC overall champion will be at a record high of ONE Million RMB (nearly 100 Thousands British Pounds)! Moreover, there will be another ONE Million RMB as a new award for the one who is the most active in the participation of all WMC2015 interactive activities online and offline.
Further detail (such as actual date, competition schedule, venue, etc) will be available later.
