Are you looking to harness your child’s wild imagination or put all that creative energy to good use? The 11th Bulgarian Creative Writing Competition 2021, organized in Pakistan for the first time ever 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 Bulgarian Creative Writing Competition (BCWC) 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.
11th Bulgarian Creative Writing Competition BCWC 2021
The 11th 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 (teachers, writers, native English speakers, and specialists) read the works, which remain anonymous during this process. First, second, and third places are awarded to the top submissions from each grade. All participants receive a 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.
