WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN COMPOSING FOR INDIVIDUALS
The WCCI is organised with the authority of the FIDE PCCC, and is open to all
composers from all member federations of the FIDE.
The WCCI comprises the following sections: a) Two-movers, b) Three-movers,
c) More-movers, d) Endgame studies, e) Helpmates, f) Selfmates, g) Fairies,
and h) Retro problems.
Composers are invited to submit their top-quality compositions for the WCCI.
In each section a composer may send a maximum of six problems, published during
the years 2004-2006. Corrected problems or versions may participate if they
were likewise published during these years. Problems from the 7th WCCT may compete
since the results were published in 2004, but entries for the 8th WCCT may not
compete. Joint problems are not allowed. It is not permitted to send problems
for somebody else.
Entries should be in five copies, A5 size, printed or stamped on uniform
diagrams, with the author’s name, publication date, award if known, stipulation
and full solution clearly written on the front of each diagram, and a brief
comment if desired. The algebraic notation is to be used.
Problems should be sent by post (not by email) to the Tournament Director,
postmarked not later than 31st July 2007.
In each section three judges grade the problems, giving points on a scale
from 0 to 4, with half-points allowed. The sum of a composer’s four highest-rated
problems is calculated for his final result. The composer with the highest total
for his four problems will be declared the champion for that section.
In addition, the PCCC makes the following recommendations:
- Cyrillic names and addresses of composers should be written in Cyrillic
capital letters, if possible also translated into Latin letters.
- To help the Director, the source of the compositions should, if possible,
include not only magazine and year of publication but also the month or magazine
number and/or the number of the composition.
- If a composition has been computer-tested, this should be indicated with
the symbol "C+" or "Co".
- Unusual fairy forms should be explained.
