Over the eight years of the competition, it received about 800,000 photos from more than 90,000 participants.
The exposition presented at the Zavidovo resort includes works of different years from different categories. So, for example, the photograph «Sulak Canyon – deepest canyon in Europe was sent as part of one of the most popular – “Landscape” in 2020. It depicts a canyon located in the central part of Dagestan, in the valley of the Sulak River – this is one of the most visited natural attractions of the republic by tourists. And the photo “Bridge over the Don River” became a finalist of the 2019 competition in the nomination “Russia from a bird's eye view”.
Each photo of the competition is unique. For these shots, photographers climb mountains and risk their lives following wild animals; others descend to the bottom of the sea to show the diversity of the underwater world; others get to know people and take pictures to tell amazing life stories.
With this photo contest, the Russian Geographical Society also inspires compatriots living around the world to travel around Russia, create own unique shots.
