2016 Andrei Stenin Photo Contest
The Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest aims to promote young photographers and attract public attention to photojournalism and its mission. The contest is being held by Rossiya Segodnya under the patronage of the Russian Federation’s Commission for UNESCO. The theme of the contest is Visualizing a Path to Global Understanding. Young photo journalists can convey this through their lens, reflecting a multidimensional understanding of the world in their entries.
The contest is open to participants aged 18 to 33. Entries will be accepted in five main categories: My Country, World Colors. Harmony of Life, Portraits: A Hero of Our Time, Breaking News and Sports.
Entries may be submitted online through the site stenincontest.com until March 22, 2016. The awards ceremony and the opening of the corresponding photo exhibition is scheduled to take place on August 30, 2016, in Moscow.
In 2015, about 5,000 entries from 54 countries were submitted for the first contest. Its geographical base spanned four continents, including countries of Europe, North and South America, Africa, the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia. Russian participants were widely represented – from Moscow to St. Petersburg and from Vladivostok to Nakhodka. The awards ceremony took place in Moscow and the winning entries were presented to the public at exhibitions and festival venues inside and outside Russia.
