An international panel of six photography professionals will determine the winners of the eighth annual Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest. The jury, which was named on Wednesday, includes experts from Russia, the US, and Germany, among others.
The annual photo competition is held in honor of acclaimed photo journalist Andrei Stenin, who was killed in eastern Ukraine in 2014 at the age of 33. Since 2015, young photojournalists from all over the world have had the opportunity to win cash prizes and make a name for themselves internationally.
The “Andrei Stenin Contest is a great trampoline in the carrier of any photographer,” according to Agence France-Presse Photo Director for Asia-Pacific Mladen Antonov, one of this year’s judges. “Chief photo editors around the world are familiar with the level of qualities any photographer must have in order to win in this contest,” he said, adding that the international tour of the winning photos “opens many unexpected doors for their creators.”
Despite the restrictions imposed around the world due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the event has retained one of its most important traditions – the international touring exhibition of the winning photos.
Winners could see their works displayed in cities across Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East, as well as the UN Headquarters in New York and the Council of Europe in Strasbourg.
