2012 Bulgarian Women's Chess Championship

I assume that the Bulgarian Women's Championship is a true invitational, that is, the top-rated female players in the country are NOT COMPELLED by the country's chess federation to play in the championship but are free to decline an invitation, usually (but not always) due to the paucity of prize money and lack of prestige associated with the title.

And so, this gives younger and/or lower-rated female players a chance to go for the title.  Final standings, Bulgarian women's championship (information from The Week in Chess):
