Five days Composing Tourneys, 28 July – 2 August, are announced within WCCC 2016: Group A, #2 (judge: Marjan Kovačević); Group B, Ser-r#3-8 (judge: Miodrag Mladenović). See details on the official WCCC 2016 website, section Official composing tournaments. For the Congress participants only. Welcome to participate!
One of the aims of the Belgrade World Congress of Chess Composition 2016 was to engage the youngest generation of chess composers. Ten participants representing four countries – from 8 to 18 years – took part in the 1st YCCC. They produced 29 chess compositions, fulfilling thematic conditions in three different genres (#2, h#2 and endgames).
We are proud to present the Gallery of the participants, including their recent photos and selected compositions. We hope that connecting young composers all over the world will help them feel that they have their own generation in a field dominated by much older authors.
