EN <-> RU

From the tourney director Aleksey Oganesjan I have received 58 anonymous entries. The authors of No 12, 22 and 31 have presented their problems in two versions. As the director informed me, the authors of the ten problems (No 35 to 44) are six young composers, ages 10-15, so I decided to create separate award for them.
Problems No 19 (Kg2-Ke3) and No 30 (Kg2-Ke3) haven’t been awarded because of No 11 and No 15. All four problems have almost identical content, but positions of No 11 and No 15 are more economical. Problem No 28 (Ka2-Ke4) hasn’t been awarded because of No 50.
Many authors have tried to expand content in some unconvincing way. As far as "change of functions" is concerned, I don’t think it has been clearly implemented anywhere, covering all four thematic variants. Presence of parasite variants followed by the same mates like in thematic variants, I considered as a great disadvantage. While looking for anticipations in Albrecht problem database, I found some amazing realizations of the theme. That is the reason why some of the problems haven’t been rewarded or placed higher. A list of problems from Albrecht problem database is given in the Annex at the end of the award. E.g. problem No 56 (Kg5 Ke4) have similar idea like problem C but it has a dual in the threat. A few months ago, during analysis of the masterpiece A, with Marjan Kovačević, I came up with idea for the theme of this tournament.
I have selected 17 problems for the award. I believe that the other authors will understand why their works were not selected, after a detailed comparison with rewarded ones. For the first time, I had the honor to judge, so let me thank to Marjan Kovačević on his support and advice during this amazing experience. Finally, I want to thank to all the participants for the quality and quantity of the entries.

Award is the following | Отличия распределились следующим образом

Very nice idea. White combinations, closing 4 different lines, with 4 different refutations on the same square. Solution completes the WB star, geometrically matching with the diagonal “Black hole”.

This is the best twin problem in the tournament. Both thematic moves are the keys and the tries. Unfortunately, in one twin there are WB & WR which have no functions in the solution. Very symmetrical white play.

Another “Black hole cross”. Thematic variations are without capturing, and the key-move gives thematic flight in a very attractive way, supported by 2 tries.

1...Qxe5 2.Sxg6#
1...Sxe5 2.Bxg3#
1...Rxe5 2.Qf3#
Another problem with seven variants on thematic square. Nice key without capturing. This problem is not placed higher because No 16 makes much better impression.

1…Rexd5 2.Sxd4#
1…Rcxd5 2.Bxc7#
1…Kxd5 2.Rxd4#
(1…Qa4 2.Bxc5#)
Nice change of mates with pinned BQ and after Rcxd5. Black pawn on b7 is not necessary but in the set play on 1…Rcxd5 it prevents dual. With moving position to the left a parasite variant 1…Qa4 would be avoided.

1...Qxc3 2.Qb5#
Five pin-mates. Four thematic variants plus one more on thematic square. I hoped to see problems with this idea in the tournament, but some symmetrical mates reduce the impression of the problem. Moving WR from d7 to d8 was maybe a better choice.
