The Ministry of Tourism launched a contest for child painting “My EDEN destination in Bulgaria”

01 June 2016

On the occasion of the Day of the Child, 1 June, the Ministry of Tourism announces a contest for child painting entitled “My EDEN destination in Bulgaria”. The event is organised within the project “Communication Campaign to Promote Bulgarian EDEN Destinations – Second Edition”, financed under the EU COSME 2014 – 2020 Programme.

The paintings should feature the child view of the landmarks and attractions located in the territory of the EDEN destination presented – natural, cultural, historical sites, customs, events, festivals, etc.

The contest for child painting entitled “My EDEN destination in Bulgaria” begins on 2 June 2016 and will continue till 22 July 2016 inclusive. Children aged 7 to 14 years may take part in it.  The paintings received will be examined by a jury and the best paintings may be placed on the advertising souvenirs to be created under the project (postcards and magnets), which will be distributed across the country and abroad. Everyone who wants to participate in the contest may send his/her painting  by mail or courier at address: Sofia, 1 Saborna street, for the Ministry of Tourism.

The personal viewpoint of the small participants in the contest should reveal places we do not notice in our everyday life and which can be recreated through the prism of the child perception. This will also help promote further less known tourist destinations and untraditional forms of tourism that could impress visitors.  

There are twelve EDEN destinations in Bulgaria (Silistra, Lukovit, Sandanski, Kyustendil, Belogradchik,  Belitsa, Sapareva Bania, Kavarna, Vratsa,  Strandzha, Kazanlak, and Kardjali) which promote alternative and ecological forms of tourism. They are related to the subjects of water tourism, protected territories and cultural heritage.  

Here you can find the general conditions for participation in the child contest “My EDEN destination in Bulgaria” and the declaration, which should be completed and sent together with the painting.
