Here is a more complete announcement. Links to the Julia Fairies website. (just click on the hyperlink "Jubilee tourney" in it)
There are four more examples in it.

Shankar tells me that he has already received two entries. Eagerly expecting to look at them. A few clarifications:

1. Fairy kings are allowed
2. No limit on the number of entries
3. It is ok to use fairy pieces from different groups
4. No fairy boards please (small, big or different). Stipulation and position to be unchanged (incl. move length) in various phases.

Whatever you compose will be original and no fear of anticipation !!

Happy to know from Shankar that already he received 12 entries. Obviously composers like the 'hybrid twin' requirement.

A clarification:
Imitator -- is a fairy condition and allowed. Just one phase please, and no use of other fairy condition in that phase.

More precisely:
Having an Imitator can be one of the twins.
The position of the Imitator has to be given in the twin.
Only one Imitator allowed! Not 2,3,...
Only one twin with Imitator allowed! Not like b)Ia1 c)Ia8, etc.

20 entries received already. Shankar sent me the entries (anonymous). Many superb ones and varied styles. Thanks.
More than two months for the closing date March 31. The theme proving popular.

Shankar reports that more than 40 entries received so far. Thanks for this amazing response to my Jubilee tourney.

The closing date is 31 March. More entries will be very welcome. I am sure there is enough time even now for those who have not yet attempted.

All sound entries will be hundred percent original as there are no precedents.

Thanks for the overhelming response. Shankar sent me Entry no.62 now.

Tomorrow, 31st March is the last day for entries. Shankar has promised to accept last minute efforts on the next day also.

You can expect a quick award.

Please note one error in this:
13th H.M, Problem No. 73 is actually a joint composition by Dieter Werner and Norbert Geissler.
Norbert's name was left out (my mistake :-().
Apologies to all.
A corrected pdf will follow.
