Minister of Culture (2009-2017)р
It is a pleasure for me to express my support on behalf of the Ministry of Culture for the 4 th edition of the World Competition for Children’s Drawings. The previous editions have shown so far that this event is a necessary forum which has proved its importance both in Bulgaria and worldwide. This initiative makes it possible for children and adolescents from all over the world to mature artistically and it stimulates them to follow their flair for drawing.
Works of art of the young generation make us confident that talent and emotions do not depend on age! I salute the Little Zograff Foundation team and all the participants and I believe that this contest will continue to develop further the ambassador mission for popularising Art. 2016
Honourable President of Malyk Zograf Foundation
As an organizer and a host, the team of Malyk Zograf Foundation congratulates you and thanks you for participating in the 7 th edition of the World Competition for Children’s Drawings, Sofia, Bulgaria 2019. Never before, did we receive so many and so amazing paintings. We were so happy and unhappy at the same time, because we could not give awards to everyone and yet you all deserve it!
We would like you to continue to make the world a better and a more beautiful place with your talent and to become the future big artists of this planet thus making us proud to have discovered you first.

National Donation Fund “13 centuries Bulgaria”
A child’s drawing is a special form of creation. It is colourful, sincere and truthful. It is a microcosmos in which the thoughts, hopes, fantasies and feelings of the little ones are interwoven in an unexpected for the adults way. It is an emanation of children’s dreams for a better future.!
Children and their future are one of the most important priorities for Donation Fund “13 centuries Bulgaria”. That is why we support The World Competition for Children’s Drawings “Malyk Zograf” and
its cause. Good luck!
