“The Study of the Year“ award is organized by the WFCC and aims at introducing to the general public a single friendly endgame study that would hopefully appeal to chess players of various levels and encourage them to pay a deeper attention to the art of the endgame study on a more regular basis.
The competition to select the Study of the Year 2014 (SOY2014) is organized by ARVES. The SOY 2014 will be selected by an international panel of judges (Martin Minski, Oleg Pervakov, Gady Costeff, Ilhan Aliev and Harold van der Heijden). It is not the selection of the best study of the year, but the study which is best suited to popularize our art among the general chess public. The solution should be both understandable to players of average level, and appeal to players of master level. >>more/less
Mario Guido Garcia has agreed to host the selection on the UAPA website http://www.problemistasajedrez.com.ar/. He will also act as director, i.e. accept the submissions, coordinate possible problems with the judging panel, and act as reserve judge.
Composers are invited to submit one study (co-authored studies are allowed, but count as one study for each of the composers; therefore the co-authors should agree before a study is submitted, this is the responsibility of the composers), which must have been published during the year 2014. For deceased composers, the jury would be happy to receive proposals by countrymen or friends.
All submitted studies will be published on the website soon after submission, except for the studies by the deceased composers, which will be added after the deadline. Please submit your candidate to: firstname.lastname@example.org
