Would like to mention, that this year Petko finished the award for JF-2016/I and I’m grateful to him for the very kind offer to JF again, almost without any break!
The judge for the next fairy period, JF-2020/I (January-June’2020) will be Eric Huber – another very supportive person, one of the first judges on JF (has judged JF-2013/III), International Judge of fairy problems, organizer (together with Vlaicu Crişan) of the yearly Tzuica Tourney, dedicated to helpselfmates.

Eric Huber & Vlaicu Crisan (both attending the Congress this year!)
The first half of the year 2019 is over, and the tournament JF-2019/I is closed on the 30th of June with 43 fairy problems (plus some versions). While the quantity is not so big, I believe the quality of the problems would make the competition enjoyable for the judge, Michal Dragoun! Thanks a lot to all participants and to the judge for accepting this work! Special gratitude to Shankar Ram, who was updating the index page of the tournament, menu Original Problems -> Julia’s Fairies – 2019
I’m sorry, the judge is not appointed yet for the second half of this year. Still, a new fairy tournament JF-2019/II (01.07-31.12.2019) is opened for the submissions and I’d gladly publish your good problems!
Have to tell, I’ll be less active on JF during July-August. Family vacation, some own composing for WCCC’s unofficial tournaments, 4th YCCC composing TT for juniors, and the Congress itself… So, I’d appreciate it very much if you include the notation and full solutions (with departure and arrival squares) in your entries! It would make my work much faster.
Thank you very much in advance! Wishing to all of you to have a wonderful summer! – Julia
