Submission of Entries Opens for Andrei Stenin Contest 2021

Submission of Entries Opens for Andrei Stenin Contest 2021

The seventh Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest is kicking off in Moscow. As per tradition, the submission of young photographers’ entries opens on the birthday of the late Rossiya Segodnya special photo correspondent after whom the contest was named.

Professional photographers aged 18-33 can apply through stenincontest.ru in Russian, English and Chinese. Photo series and single photos can be submitted in four categories - Top News, Sport, My Planet, and Portrait: A Hero of Our Time. One single entry and one photo series can be submitted in each of the four categories. Submissions will be accepted until 28 February 2021.

 In 2021, the prize fund will be 125,000, 100,000 and 75,000 rubles for the first, second and third places in each category. The winner of the highest Stenin contest award – the Grand Prix – will receive 700,000 rubles.

 Of no less importance is the fact that young photojournalists will have the opportunity to show their works at Russian and international venues – a touring exhibition of the winning entries has become an integral part of the project and has been shown in dozens of cities in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East.

 Since 2018, the New York headquarters of the United Nations (UN) has been one of the exhibit venues for Stenin contest winners. Since 2019, the contest’s exhibitions have also been held at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg.

 The 2020 Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest was supported by major Russian and international media, news agencies and the photo community. Shanghai United Media Group (SUMG), the China Daily web portal, the Al Mayadeen Arab media network, and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), one of the largest humanitarian organizations in the world, were partners of several categories.

The Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest, organized by Rossiya Segodnya under the patronage of the Commission of the Russian Federation for UNESCO, aims to support young photographers and draw public attention to the challenges of photojournalism today. It is a platform for young photographers – talented and sensitive individuals open to all things new – to highlight people and events near us.
