The World Handwriting Contest in now accepting entries.

Contest Categories

Within each age group, the judges will sort submissions into two categories of handwriting.

  • Functional Handwriting:
    • Functional handwriting strives for legibility, speed, and fluency without aiming at artistic effect. For this category, the judges will further separate entries as cursive, which joins 50% or more of its letters or manuscript printing, which joins fewer than half of its letters.
  • Artistic Handwriting:
    • Artistic handwriting uses a monoline or calligraphy marker, pen, or brush along with decorative strokes, flourishes, and/or combinations of shading, hairlines and/or thick and thin strokes to create an artistic effect.


  • The World Handwriting Contest awards first and second prizes in each of the above categories and subcategories.
  • Prize-winners’ names and writing samples are announced and posted on this website and our social media by October. Winners’ names & handwriting samples are displayed on this website for a full year.
