In order to compete in the championships, individuals should contact their national member to the World Puzzle Federation (WPF), as listed on the WPF Member's Page. Each member country is obliged to conduct open, national qualifying tournaments. If a country is not listed, please get in touch with us.
EligibilityOne can participate in the championship as competitor (A/B team), captain, member of team delegation (WPF delegate or guest) or organiser. A team consists of 4 members. Only WPF members can compete at the championship. There are no restrictions on who can register as a non-competing guest. Guests will be able to observe the championships in progress, and take part in all meals and activities alongside the competitors.
Team StructureIn both of the championships, each country is permitted to register up to 4 official (A) and 4 unofficial (B) competitors. The organizers are working on the availability of additional number of non-competing guests and will update this later.
Unofficial competitors will not be listed in the official results and will not be eligible for official awards and prizes, nor for taking part in the play-offs. However, they can compete in the Under 18, Over 50 and Newcomer category officially.
Each team must consist of 4 competitors. The official competitors of each country will form an official A-team. If there are less than 4 official competitors representing one country, they will be listed as official participants but only full A-teams will be listed in the official team results. All the competitors who are not part of A or B team, will be merged into United Nations (UN) teams with competitors from other countries. Only A-teams will be eligible for official team awards but all the teams will be eligible for additional unofficial prizes.
