International celebration of the life and work of Charles Dickens

Dickens 2012 is an international celebration of the life and work of Charles Dickens to mark the bicentenary of his birth, which falls on 7 February 2012. Institutions and organisations from all over the world are partners of Dickens 2012 and work together to deliver a programme of events and activities to commemorate this very special anniversary.

Although a writer from the Victorian era, Dickens’s work transcends his time, language and culture. He remains a massive contemporary influence throughout the world and his writings continue to inspire film, TV, art, literature, artists and academia.His writing has become a familiar frame of reference for so many people around the world.

The richly imagined novels that Dickens wrote combine both the realistic with the allegorical and do so to powerful effect. Dickens was a writer who knew the power of the word and the power of fiction to express the hopes and dreams, fears and frustrations of life as we live it, in our own hearts and minds and in our relationships with others.


We are pleased to invite the secondary schools in Serbia to participate in Writing Competition. The goal of the competition is to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens's birth in Serbia.
