57th WCCC: Bon voyage & good luck!

wccc-bern2014The 57th World Congress of Chess Composition starts today! I wish a nice trip and an excellent time in Bern to all participants! And good luck to everybody in composing tournaments!

These days I also need to finish some of my problems for fairy tournaments, so I’d like to ask you to allow me some delay in publication of any materials on JF. The same time I’m inviting you to write here about any news from the Congress, and to post (or to send me for publication) any photos as well! – Julia.

KMlynka70JT-aw“First of all, I would like to thank all those who published the information on my jubilee tournament and, of course, the participants for their high quality contributions. Although the announcement had allowed any kind of chess composition and any stipulations, only twomovers with cyclic change of defensive motifs were submitted. Not even a single problem did come on the theme change of harmful effects. Much to my regret, there were no threemovers or selfmates. The participants were not numerous but can be counted among the finest chess composers, as reflected in the award itself.” → Read more..
