This year's World Quizzing Championships will take place all over the world on Saturday 3 June. 

Format
WQC Question Paper

The World Quizzing Championships is made up of eight papers. These are given out in two packs of four papers. Contestants have 60 minutes to answer each pack. Which paper is in which pack will vary from year to year as the IQA draws this at random in order to keep the event a fair as possible. The subjects within each genre are:

Culture
Architecture, Fine art, Museums, Mythology, Philosophy, Religion, World cultures

Entertainment
Ballet, Classical music, Film Music, Jazz & World Music, Opera, Pop music, Radio, Television

History
Civilisations, Current Affairs, Exploration, Famous People, History

Lifestyle
Costume, Design, Fashion, Food & Drink, Handicrafts, Health & Fitness, Human Body, New Age beliefs, Products & Brands, Tourism

Media

Sciences

Sport & Games
Games, Sports, Hobbies & Pastimes, Records & achievements (in context of genre)

World
Cities, Human Geography, Physical Geography, Inventions, Space, Technology, Transport

It is possible that a question might appear to reside in either of one or two, or perhaps more, genres. Players should be aware that in selecting questions we take care to ensure a certain level of coverage and geographical spread in each of the genres and this might well dictate which genre it will finally appear within.
