FIDE ALBUM POINTS 1914-2015

FIDE ALBUM POINTS 1914-2015

The World Federation for Chess Composition (WFCC) publishes collections of the best and most representative chess problems and studies in periods of three years. At the moment 23 such FIDE ALBUMS have been published that include 24295 compositions.

International titles for composers are granted according to the Album points. One point is given for each selected problem (1,67 points for endgame studies). In joint compositions the points are divided by the number of composers. The limits are as follows:

Grandmaster: 70 points
International master: 25 points
FIDE Master: 12 points

After the results of the Album 2013-15 (the book has not been published yet), the top of the list is:
