International Day of Anagrams

Dear friends, 

The 1st International Day of Anagrams (IDA) will be arranged on May 15th 2024, on the internet blog ŠMEK (chessandpuzzles.blogspot.com). The chosen day for IDA is the birthday of Larry Brash (1948-2017), Australian psychiatrist who was the co-founder of the excellent Anagrammy Awards, website for true fans of anagrams. 

The organizer of this event is Serbian journalist and writer Zoran Radisavljević, winner of many international competitions for the puzzlers (including 13 times at the Serbian Open Championship for Anagrammers). 

During IDA, Radisavljević’s blog will host at least two competitions in anagram solving. The first one (from 17:00 to 20:00 CET) will be with anagrams in English and after that there will be a solving competition in Serbian language (from 20:00 to 23:00 CET). 

Beside that, the host of the blog will prepare a Challenge Contest, which will start on 14th May, at 23:59 CET. Competitors will have 24 hours to create the best anagram in English language from offered letters. There will be money prizes for the winners of competitions. Other prizes will be interesting puzzle books. 

I hope you will inform your friends about this event. Any help and participation are welcome, the idea is to spread the IDA around the world.
