If you have never competed before, go to a competition! A WCA ID and WCA profile will be created for you when the results from your first competition are uploaded.

Many competitions do registration right here on the WCA website, but some use their own systems. You should contact the organizers of the competition you want to compete in for more details.
In general, there are not many requirements for a person to participate at a WCA competition. However, all participants of a competition are expected to have a good understanding of the WCA regulations. In addition, we would recommend having a look at Cubing USA's competitor tutorial, which gives several nice hints for newcomers.
If you are interested in organizing a competition, it's highly recommended to attend at least one or two competitions as a competitor to learn from the experience.
WCA Competitions must follow the WCA Regulations. The organization team doesn't have to know the regulations by heart, however, a deep knowledge of the basics of the regulations would definitely help in correctly organizing the competition.
After that, the organization team must contact a nearby WCA Delegate. The supervision of a WCA Delegate is required in order to make a competition officially sanctioned by the WCA. The WCA Delegate will help guide the organization on how to host a successful competition.
Visit this guide for further information. (Any conflict between the information presented in this supplementary resource and the WCA Regulations is superseded by the WCA Regulations.)
You are assigned a WCA ID when you first participate in a WCA sanctioned competition. When the results from that competition are uploaded, your WCA profile will be created, with results from every competition you have been to.
WCA accounts allow you to prove to us who you are. This allows you to add a picture to your WCA profile, and allows you to register for competitions. This will protect you from other people pretending to be you.
You can create an account here.
First, you need to create a WCA account and connect it to your WCA ID.
After you have connected your WCA account and your WCA ID, go to your edit profile page to change your profile picture.
Create an account here. After you log in with your new account, you will be asked to claim your WCA ID.
