Wow! Valery Semenenco — surprise entry in the Fairy section prize list!
And Kuzovko does it again winning #3 and #n sections. He did it earlier in FIDE tourney 2021. Kudos to all the winners 👍 👍

Indeed, e.g. Valery’s No 4 was in my view hugely overvalued. Compare it to Oliva&Pernaric&Koludrovic, 2nd Prize 23rd TT Problemkiste 2002-2003 (3b4/1Sp1sPp1/R2pk1pQ/8/1S4pp/K3p2B/2p1RP1P/8, ser-h=25) or Nedeljkovic&Tomasevic, 3rd Prize Zeller MT 2003-2004 (1K6/3p1P2/R1p1kp2/8/6p1/1p5B/Q3p1p1/4RS2, ser-h=22). And those two problems were not included in the relevant Album… so I assigned only 1.5 points to this problem and was shocked to find out that my judging colleagues used mark 3.5 en masse.
Of course, this is not a single case, èven my own composition was overvalued, IMHO. There is crucial problem with WCCI directly feeding the Album. But there is no will to correct this issue, known for a long time.
