Another important milestone achieved! The WCCT-10 announcement is ready!
The WCCT committee had been very busy in the past months with the selection of themes and judging countries of the 10th World Chess Composition Tournament. We invite the problemists worldwide to download the announcement which includes the rules, the time schedule and the theme definitions. As Georgy Evseev, the Spokesman of the committee and director of the tournament, points out the 10th WCCT will be the first tournament that is started without Uri Avner, who was the driving force behind several of the recent WCCTs. We hope that the themes presented in the announcement will provide the necessary inspiration for the final result to be marvelous and to reflect the best our art can achieve. We also hope that this will be a good way to pay our last respect to Uri Avner.
(02.03.2014) The uploaded file – The Supplementary Results of the 9th World Chess Composition Tournament 2012-13 – has been updated once more: the diagram of F42 (45th-50th Place) was not the correct one. (H.F.)
Harry Fougiaxis, Director of the 9th WCCT, presents The Supplementary Results of the 9th World Chess Composition Tournament 2012-13: Compositions ranked lower than the 20th place.
This is the document containing the compositions that were ranked lower than the 20th place in the 9th World Chess Composition Tournament (WCCT) of the WFCC. They are displayed in diagrams with full solutions and any comments sent in by the countries.
(18.02.2014) A correction is added to the document uploaded as “The diagram and solution of G56 were an unfortunate copy-paste mistake of G13.” (H.F.)

The winner of the 9th WCCT is Russia, ahead of Ukraine and Israel. All 37 participating countries received points. See the Results of the 9th WCCT and also the Booklet in PDF for download.
