The 12th edition of the Bulgarian Creative Writing Competition is underway and it is getting closer to its final stage. The registration started on October 1st and it was completed by October 25th. 140 schools registered for participation and over 3000 participants took part in the competition. For a second year we have an international participation – 150 students from Pakistan submitted their pieces of creative writing.
The writing days were organized on November 23rd and 24th. Due to the COVID pandemic most of the schools in Bulgaria were on distance learning and the competition was organized online. The students had an hour to write on topics provided by the organizers – 3 topics for each grade. They were unusual and provoked the creative and imaginary thinking of the students. The students really enjoyed them and among the most popular among them were: “Doing nothing is hard, you never know when you're done”, “The curious friendship between the sun and the cloud”, “I would go out of my mind, but I can't find the exit “, etc.
The first round of judging is planned for January 12th-18th and it will be organized online. 50 Judges with expertise in different spheres but united by their love for reading and writing will select the best 18 works in each age category. The selected works will advance to the national round of judging which will happen online on January 29th and 30th and the winners will be announced on January 31st. The Award ceremony will be organized online at the end of February and all the participants and their teachers will be invited to be part of it.
