C. J. MORSE AWARD FOR 2-MOVE TASKS AND RECORDS
Written by Michael McDowell
The British Chess Problem Society is pleased to announce a new award
designed to continue the work of the late Sir Jeremy Morse and to
perpetuate his memory. Composers are invited to send their two-movers (#2)
which they believe to be tasks or records published anywhere in the world
within the period 1.1.2012 – 31.12.2016 (but not already to be found in
Sir Jeremy’s book). The problems of deceased compatriots published within
the same period may also be submitted.
Entries should be sent as an email attachment in pdf format (one diagram
to a page) to
(or to Michael via the ‘Contact’ menu item on the left) by
31.3.2017. Not more than 5 problems (no later substitutions permitted) may
be submitted by any one composer. Give publication data, full solution and
comment if desired, state the task achieved, and add your name and email
address. Show C+ if computer-tested.
The judges will be Peter Gvozdják, Marjan Kovačević and Michael Lipton. No
judge will assess his own problems. It is intended that the Award will be
published in The Problemist before the end of 2017. Thereafter the
C. J. Morse Award for 2-move Tasks and Records will be held every 2 years. A
prize fund of up to £100 will be available.
