Competition in this arcane field is just as fierce as that which takes place over the board, and various international contests are held each year by mail. Composers compete not only against each other, but against tradition and a general standard of excellence. Their works are judged on beauty and originality. In conjunction with the 22nd Olympiad 310 entries were submitted to the Israel Chess Federation from 125 authors in 23 nations.

The above problem by T.H. Bwee of West Germany won first prize in the two-move section even though the key move was not as surprising as one expects. Unfortunately the two-mover is virtually exhausted after all these centuries. The judge wrote: "It was rather sad that the standard of the 84 entries was not satisfactory and certainly not up to expectations in a distinguished Olympiad event. There is but one comfort: it would appear-that the orthodox two-mover has had its time and only once in a while the opportunity to display refreshing contents.

The quest for an absolute originality was given up long ago." Out of 52 entries in the endgame section, 30 were disqualified due to various faults. I am happy to report that one of the winners was my first effort inspired by a game I once played where my opponent missed the difficult draw. MM.
