History from the author:

In 2012, I became the winner of this competition, went to the awards ceremony, which takes place in the ancient Natural History Museum in central London. This is, of course, an unforgettable story.

Right now I am working on preparations for the opening of the final exhibition of another international competition, but already in Russia – the Golden Turtle. This competition is already 12 years old, and I can say that the quality of the work and the composition of the authors are no worse than in London. This year, 1802 authors from 98 countries participated in the competition. The jury was also international and consisted of leading photographers from around the world (6 out of 7 foreigners), which guaranteed impartiality and high quality selection.
