The WFCC is pleased to announce the results of the 2013-15 World Championship in Composing for Individuals. The WCCI was conducted, as usual, in 8 sections and attracted a record number of 2862 entries by 248 composers from 41 countries. We are grateful to Dmitry Turevsky, the director of the championship, who uploaded all entries on the site, co-ordinated flawlessly the 40 judges and prepared an excellent and very comprehensive report. All judges worked smoothly and submitted their scores on time. The members of the supervising panel resolved a few minor issues without interfering to the judges’ work.
Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all participants who made the championship such a great success!
The ceremony and the award of trophies will be held in this year’s congress in Belgrade.

“Due to the sorting error in one of the judge’s scores, several scores were inadvertently given to the wrong composers. This specifically affected A. and V. Semenenko, Shanahan and Šemrinec. After noticing the error, the scoring table and the winning compositions were removed from the WFCC site. The scores were corrected, sent to all five judges for verification and posted on the WFCC site. My sincere apologies to all composers affected by this unfortunate event”.
Mike Prcic, Director of the WCCI
Russian translation / Русский перевод:
“В связи с ошибкой в сортировке оценок одного из судей, несколько оценок были случайно даны не тем композиторам. В частности, это коснулось А. и В. Семененко, Shanahan и Šemrinec. После обнаружения ошибки таблица результатов и композиции победителей были удалены с сайта WFCC. Оценки были исправлены, разосланы всем пяти судьям для проверки и снова посланы для размещения на сайте WFCC. Мои искренние извинения всем композиторам, которых коснулся этот случай”.
Майк Прчич, директор WCCI
