    Nice theme, quite easy to solve as it’s necessary to try and find a function for, e.g. ANh7.
    (Note: I would prefer the solution to be written 1…S~ 2.Ge4; 1…Bc~ 2.Nc4, as there are really only 4 variations, not 8).
    A fairy piece can be saved by using a wBa6, not a wS; as b4 is already double-guarded without the wS and then the GI and the G work harder. Then of course the wAN f2 can be replaced by a wP. This wP could be saved altogether if a key such as LIc7-f4 is acceptable; by moving the bLc2 to h7 and the wANh7 to h1.

    dear Emmerson,
    excuse the delay but only now I noticed the comment.
    The observations are right and I’ll try to do to have a corrected version to the judge.
    It is difficult to understand the presence of the Sa6, remain blindness and haste in sending for publication …

    thanks and best regards
