The Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest was established on December 22, 2014 by Rossiya Segodnya under the patronage of the Russian Federation’s Commission for UNESCO. The contest is aimed at supporting young photo journalists aged 18 to 33 in their striving for top professionalism.
The contest offers young photo journalists an opportunity to make their concerns known. The main themes of the contest include global humanitarian challenges, national identity, social equality and the environment. The number of contest participants and the countries they come from has been growing every year. The contest itself is gaining popularity also thanks to the exhibitions of the winning entries, which have become an integral part of the event. They have been held in dozens of countries, including China, South Africa, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, DR Congo, Turkey, Lebanon, Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Poland and many others.
