About this opportunity

Organized annually by the Rossiya Segodnya media group, this contest is dedicated to the memory of Andrei Stenin, a Russian photojournalist who tragically lost his life while on assignment. The competition is designed to discover, recognize, and foster young photographers aged 18 to 33, offering them a distinguished platform to showcase their work on a global stage.

This contest is unique in its commitment to supporting young photographers who capture compelling, newsworthy stories through their lenses. It emphasizes the importance of photojournalism in documenting social, political, and cultural events, and in shaping public discourse. The contest’s categories, including Top News, Sports, My Planet, and Portrait, encourage participants to explore diverse themes and subjects. These categories reflect the multifaceted nature of photojournalism and its ability to capture the essence of our world’s dynamic and varied landscapes.


The contest offers substantial rewards, with the top prize being 700,000 rubles (approximately $7,840).

These prizes not only offer financial incentives but also provide a platform for the winners to gain significant recognition in the field of photojournalism.
