The 10th annual Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest opened for entries on Friday, aligning with the birthday of Rossiya Segodnya photojournalist Andrei Stenin, who was killed on duty in Donbas in 2014.

The contest is an annual competition run by the Rossiya Segodnya media company to look for emerging talent among photojournalists aged 18 to 33.

Sputnik News Agency and Radio are its international media partners.

"We are very pleased to launch the 10th-anniversary competition, a tribute to our colleague and war correspondent Andrei Stenin. Over 10 years, it has become a truly multinational platform for young and talented photographers who are not afraid to take risks, look for new angles and express their opinions in a bright and unbiased manner," Oksana Oleinik, the contest’s curator, said.

The contest’s anniversary edition comes with updates. A new category, "View From Above," has been added to the existing four — "Top News," "Sports," "My Planet," and "Portrait. A Hero of Our Time." 

It will encourage contestants to explore a new visual perspective with a focus on unconventional subjects and settings.

The top prize is 700,000 rubles ($7,904). The first, second and third places in the contest will fetch 125,000 rubles ($1,411), 100,000 rubles ($1,129) and 75,000 rubles ($846.96), respectively.

Rossiya Segodnya, with support from the Russian Federation’s Commission for Unesco, organizes the Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest. It aims to raise awareness of the difficulties facing photojournalism today and to assist upcoming photographers.
