Original Problems


(11.01.2020) The New Year 2020 came to us, and the new fairy tournament JF-2020/I starts on JF. Welcome to all of you!

I’m glad to welcome our judge of this period, Eric Huber! It is the 2nd time when Eric has accepted my invitation to judge JF’s tournament. Can’t believe that almost 7 years have passed since Eric’s 1st time (JF-2013(III)Award)!

Dear Eric, thank you very much for your support! And I hope that authors will do their best to make your work enjoyable!
