In the announcement of section A (h#2) it is stated captures of different white pieces at B1.
Is it thematic to show captures of different white PAWNS?

In section A, it can be any different white units that are captured at B1. The judge confirms that capturing white pawns is treated as thematic.

Less than a month left for submissions.

A clarification is given for section B, that the thematic pieces should be on their thematic exchange squares in the diagram position, as in the examples. The announcement document (at the above link) has been updated with clarification notes.

About Sake Turney.
A) Announcement: "Only congress participants can receive bottles.", ok for this. But the non-participants can send their problems aiming only for the awards and no for the bottles of sake?
B) Which programm can someone use to test problems with Total Invisible? I use Popeye 4.79 but I can't find any setting to do this.

It is not 100% clear from the announcement, but entries from non-participants most likely will be accepted. Historically, Sake tourneys have been open to everyone.

Like Invisibles, there is no solving program that can test problems with Total Invisibles. You have to rely on your own cooking skills.
