The study of chess is an artistic creation, the essence of creativity, play within play, and the authors of the study are accordingly playful artists - and a bit of magicians.
In 2021, the Judit Polgár Chess Foundation launched the first ever chess study competition under the auspices of the Global Chess Festival, creating a tradition. This year, the festival celebrates the genre and the composers in a different way. The "Chess Artistry Adventures" is an invitation-only event, with each invited composer's entry being featured in the Global Chess Festival's Chess Study Gallery, and will be shown and analysed in a video guided tour for current and future fans of the genre. There are no first prizes, no special prizes - everyone wins, creators and audience alike.
With this event, the Global Chess Festival pays tribute to the memory of Pál Benkő (died in 2019), a brilliant scholar, mentor and former coach of multiple World Chess Champion candidate Judit Polgár.
