The results of the FIDE Album 2013-15 section D are ready!
The initially appointed director had to quit in the middle of the process for personal reasons; in agreement with the spokesman of the studies committee, Siegfried Hornecker was selected as a substitute who wrapped-up the so far available material and finalized the work on time. There were 580 compositions scoring at least 4,5 points (out of the totally submitted 834 entries, incl. duplicates) – a rather moderate percentage of 70%. The 13,97% ratio of studies with 8+ points vs. the entries with 4,5+ points was marginally lower than 14%, so also the compositions with 7,5 points are selected.
Many thanks to the director and the judges for their hard and efficient work!
