Is the competition open to non-Estonians?

I did a google translate and it doesn't seem to say anything about non-Estonians.

This is in English, I think, unless my computer decided to translate it, doubtful seeing how slow my internet is (No, I think it decided to play ball). It opens up a PDF file (not in English) which seems to be a scan of a text, so I can't translate it.

There's another competition about some Olympics thing too.

Some more I translated from the rules:

"the designs for the specification annexed to this rules and regulations (Appendix 1 ) .

Kujunduskvandite filing requirements are as follows :
The designs must be submitted in black and white A4 page, two - scale ( 1 : 1 and 4: 1 ) and do not need to show the highest / lowest surface ;"

My idea: a large, silhouetted portrait of Keres. Inside the silhouette, a chess board, from any angle, just not straight above with a famous Keres (end) position centred on the brain part of the head. Keres' identification opposite the face, country name behind the back of the head, date below.

Problem sees to be you have to mail the design, rather than e-mail, which makes life difficult where I am. Don't trust the mail one bit.

Are there any other rules which are important? The PDF file is annoying.

Registered mail should work. Chinese civil servants have high respect for officially inscribed stuff. Have you asked Rasmus to help on the PDF? Rasmus is a good guy. I realise how important it is to comply fully with all the rules.

Also, I don't claim ownership of the idea above ;)

Well, They expect drawnings on A4 paper :)

First I suggest, to use this website, to ask official reglement: https://www.eestipank.ee/teabenoude-vorm?register=45102

I could try to translate text if needed, but sure they will have an english documents also in some time.

Second, indeed they want paperbased results, which need to send them on closed envelope with keyword "Keres" (PDF p 2.4) which also contain another envelope about author.


Third, All technical requirements are in PDF p 3. Most important are:
Standard 2 euro backside requirements about 12 stars and so on..
Text and number should be atleast 1 mm high
One A4 paper with black-white design in two sizes (1:1 and 4:1), also highest/lowest point needs to be showde.

Mandatory elements of the text of the "Eesti" and "Paul Keres" and the year 2016. The design is advisable to use a portrait or a portrait of Paul Keres chess or chess, and a fragment of the element.

How about depicting Keres' portrait with a chess board background? The chess board could be given some 3D effect to make it more interesting. :) Greek €10 coin commemorating Pythagoras makes excellent use of 3D effect.

Good thinking Aditya.

Thank you Rasmus. I tested your link and had no trouble copying Latvian text into Google translate. Since English is such a flexible language, you may still have minor problems*, but they should be surmountable.

Peter

* example: does "another envelope about author" mean a self-adressed enveloppe to return the participation or a separate closed enveloppe with the participants' CV and references?

Hehe, Latvian is littlebit different giberish  :)

As I understood, it mean You will add to Your design envelope another closed envelope about Your name and data. They will choose winners and then look who is behind design, so for jury it is anonymous competition.
They will not return anything back, all what you send will remain at Estonian Bank.

Quite nice. I like the visual jokes with chess pieces and the four fields of the chess board. The game shares the honours with the player.
