Global Chess Festival

Judit Polgar Chess Foundation


Chess is a magical bond that overcomes frontiers, cultural and ethnical differences. It unites generations. It is a language we can all speak.


We created the hashtag #ChessConnectsUs so that people from all around the world can show they feel part of the chess community, too.



Do you also love chess and feel that it is a bond between us? Signal it to the rest of the chess community in 3 easy steps:

  1. Write #ChessConnectsUs on a piece of paper.
  2. Take a selfie with it or ask someone to take a photo of you.
  3. Post your picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and write in the text #ChessConnectsUs.


The selected images will form part of a gigantic collage with faces from all around the world!
