Are you looking to harness your child’s wild imagination or put all that creative energy to good use? The 12th Bulgarian Creative Writing Competition (BCWC) 2022, organized in Pakistan by Eye on Ivy, is the perfect opportunity to catch those clouds and daffodils. Eye on Ivy is pleased to announce that it has brokered an arrangement with none other than the CorPlus to allow Pakistani students to participate. The BCWC originally began in 2011, and by 2019 had over 4,000 participants. The BCWC aims to foster a love for creativity, imagination, reading and writing.
12th Bulgarian Creative Writing Competition 2022
The 12th BCWC is a one-time 60 minute creative writing paper. Currently, both schools and individuals can register. Tests can either be taken in-person or online.
Once all the pieces of work have been received, three panels of judges in Bulgaria (teachers, writers, native English speakers, and specialists) read the works, which remain anonymous during this process. The top 10 percent of all participants in each grade are awarded medals & achievement certificates. Exceptional entries move on to the international round for judging. All other participants receive a participation certificate.
Finalists are presented with prizes: high-quality English-learning and writing-related materials donated from supporting organizations. There are also several additional prizes provided for outstanding writing including autographed books from celebrated authors.
Of course, prizes are only one reason to participate in the BCWC. The main goal is to show students that every sort of talent deserves to be cultivated and shared with the world. Everyone’s voice matters! So join the fun.

Each school must register and establish a contact person—usually an English teacher. After the registration, various creative writing lessons and past topics will be shared via email.
Individuals, after filling out the form follow the registration process below.
We encourage you to register as early as possible to gain preparation material and ample time to prepare for the contest. Under the supervision of a teacher, students are given one hour to respond to a grade-specific topic. They may not use any dictionaries, textbooks, or other materials when writing. It’s the ideas that matter, not the grammar!
