Apply for UNESCO Andrei Stenin Photo Contest for Photographers

Details on the  2017 UNESCO Andrei Stenin Photo Contest for Photographers

Application is currently ongoing for the 2017 UNESCO Andrei Stenin Photo Contest for Photographers

MOSCOW, December 22, Rossiya Segodnya Press Service.
On the birthday of Rossiya Segodnya Special Photo Correspondent Andrei
Stenin, the international contest commemorating him is now accepting
photos from young photojournalists around the world.  Applications can
now be submitted to the stenincontest.com website through March 22,
2017.

Photographers of 18 to 33 years of age qualify to take part. The
Andrei Stenin photo contest was established by Rossiya Segodnya
under the auspices of Russia’s Commission for UNESCO. It is Russia’s
only platform to discover new names and supports young professional
photographers.

The 2017 contest will showcase four categories
for which young photographers can vie for awards: “Top News” and
“Sport”,  “My Planet”  and “Portrait. A Hero of Our Time”. The 1st, 2nd
and 3rd prizes amount to 50,000, 35,000 and 25,000 rubles, respectively,
with the Grand Prix set at 500,000 rubles.  Even more important is the
opportunity for young photojournalists to showcase their works
at Russian and international exhibitions.

Alexander
Shtol, Director of Rossiya Segodnya Photo Information Directorate: “The
Andrei Stenin International Photo Contest is a chance for young
photojournalists from around the world to make a name for themselves,
to assess their skills and see what drives and thrills them most in this
job and what they should pursue. The contest, with a jury of leading
international photographers and photography experts, discovers new names
and displays their works for the whole world to see. We are happy
to welcome new contestants and wish them good luck!”

The 2016
contest was the largest ever since its establishment. The jury had
to choose from among 6,000 entries by young photojournalists from 71
countries, including Russia. Winning photograps have been shown
in Moscow, Istanbul, Cape Town, Cairo, Shanghai and Beijing, Rome,
Berlin, Maribor and Ljubljana. The Grand Prix prize in the 2016 contest
went to Italian photographer Danilo Garcia Di Meo for a photo series
about paralyzed young woman, Letizia. The series won the hearts of the
jury and, as a result, Letizia made her first ever foreign trip
to Russia where she could tell her story in person and inspire those
many people who live a similar life.
