Julia’s Fairies 2013-I
To the Preliminary Award of Julia’s Fairies 2013-I received one objection, regarding 9th Prize (No.273, Skoba&Golha). A problem with the same content was earlier published by Cornel Pacurar (PS2514F, The Problemist Supplement 09/2011).
The judge’s decision is:
The problems have the same main content – the black Rook helps the white King and pawn to gradually move to the other end of the board. But there are also differences in favour of No.273:
- mate with a promotion into Rook;
- in a) a Rook is captured on black squares, in b) – on white.
In my opinion this is enough to justify the independent existence of problem No.273. But, of course, it is not enough for such a high score, so it loses its prize and is instead awarded with 4th-11th commendation. As a result, the Award has 8 prizes, 10 hon.mentions, 11 commendations.
No other objections were received, so the Award of Julia’s Fairies 2013-I becomes final as mentioned above.
The Final Award of Julia’sFairies-2013/I will be published in few days, but for now the appendix about changes mentioned above is added to Preliminary Award.

of the AWARD JF-2013/I
I’m happy to announce that English version of the Award for Julia’sFairies-2013/I is ready! I’m so much grateful to Geoff Foster who’s worked together with me under this translation, has helped me to understand many problems and comments better and to make the result so close to original text. I have to tell also, that with all the work we still appreciated all detailed comments a lot and were thankful for them to the judge! I believe that many of you, who will read the Award, will understand some of the problems much better.
The Award is preliminary now and will become final after two weeks, on the 17th of July. The final version will be corrected in accordance with comments and objections you send.
One more time my congratulations to the winners and thanks a lot to all participants!
The AWARD – JF-2013/I
June, 17th, 2013
First of all I should apologize for the delay with the Award for Julia’sFairies-2013/I! As I have written before, I’ve got it from the judge, Juraj Brabec, yet in May, but needed some time to prepare for publication. The original Award is in Russian and I’d like to thank Dmitri Turevski, who’s helped me a lot with correction of Russian terminology.
English version is not ready yet, but will be presented soon, with a help of Geoff Foster who’s so kind to help me with language corrections in many cases. For now just the introduction to the Award is translated.
