The annual Andrei Stenin international press photo contest begins accepting contest works on December 22, the birthday of Rossiya Segodnya special photo correspondent Andrei Stenin, who died while on assignment. Rossiya Segodnya organized the contest under the auspices of Russia’s Commission for UNESCO to discover new talent in photo journalism, and promote and develop high standards of documentary photography. It is Russia’s only international contest in support of young professional photographers.
In 2015 it gathered 5,000 plus works from 54 countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia.
