If the epidemiological situation worsens due to the coronavirus, the face-to-face venues of the Geographical Dictation will be able to hold the action remotely. If necessary, organizers have the opportunity to quickly change the format of the action from face-to-face to remote version.

It will be possible to pass the dictation in a remote format only on October 30 from 12:00 to 13:00 local time. Participants who have pre-registered at their selected venue will receive a special link from the organizers. By clicking on it, they will have access to all the materials of the dictation. Participants will be asked to fill out a questionnaire and will receive an individual 13-digit form number (code). See more here.
