abstract = {Summary: Inspired by the recurrent findings on the steady decrease in students' interest in mathematics, this paper is concerned with sources of experts' motivation for posing problems for mathematics competitions. Twenty-six experts from nine countries participated in the study. The inductive analysis of the data suggests that experts utilise posing problems for mathematics competitions for fulfilment of their internal needs: an intellectual need for enriching their mathematical knowledge base and a socio-psychological need for belonging, recognition and appreciation. Educational implications of the findings for students are discussed and future research directions are presented.},
