National Geographic Russia Chooses Winners of Photo Competition

National Geographic Russia magazine has chosen the winners of its seventh annual Wildlife of Russia photo contest.

This years edition of the contest ran from April 18 through September 30, and received more than 60,000 submissions of photos taken in Russia. The jury selected the most outstanding images from a shortlist of approximately 600 works.

As usual, the most interesting photos were those in the Landscape and Mammals categories. Photographs in the Urban Jungle category were also pleasantly surprising, National Geographic Russia art director Alevtina Sukhorukova said. This is a new category we introduced this year, and some of the submissions were truly unique, she added.

The jury included Darren Smith (deputy editorial director of international NG editions), Andrei Palamarchuk (NG Russia editor-in-chief), Andrei Kamenev (NG Russia chief photographer), Sergei Gorshok (NG Russia contributing photographer), and Igor Shpilenok (nature photographer).

General partner to the competition B&N Banks chief manager of marketing communications and branding Vladas Vintsyunac and blogger Yaroslav Shuraev took part in choosing the winner for the special category The Energy of Life.

The winners will be announced in December at the opening of the exhibition of their works in the Central House of Artists at 10 Krymsky Val, Moscow. Check the website nat-geo.ru for updates.
