10th WCCT: Announcement


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.
