Our free photography contest recommendation of the day!
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.
Entries can contain a single photograph or series of no more than 12 photographs. Minor cropping, or balance (white balance) or density (brightness, contrast) correction is acceptable. Framed images, collages, photos that have been significantly photoshopped, with parts of the image edited, deleted or replaced with a different image, will not be accepted.
Photographs must have been taken after January 1, 2015. In exceptional cases, series of photographs started in previous years are accepted. In such case, the last photograph of the series must have been taken in 2015 or 2016.
