The finalists of the 10th Andrei Stenin International Contest for young photojournalists have been announced in Moscow.
The shortlist of the winners, as well as the competition entries they submitted are published on the contest website in Russian https:/ and English .
As is traditional, the shortlist, compiled by an international jury, is not ranked; the places will be announced in September along with the Grand Prix.
This year, which marks a decade of the Stenin contest, the jury for the first time consists only of international photojournalists, winners of the Stenin Contest Grand Prix from different years.
The number of countries from which the finalists come has been growing every year. The 2024 shortlist for the first time includes singles and photo series by young photojournalists from Syria, South Africa and Myanmar. This year’s winners represent 10 countries. The international jury had to choose from about 2,000 works contributed by 557 competitors from 36 countries, including China, Ecuador, France, India, Iran, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Syria, the United Kingdom, the United States, and others.
Oksana Oleinik, curator of the Andrei Stenin Contest, has shared her remarks regarding the shortlist:

“A crucial aspect of our competition is the work of the jury. In this special anniversary year of the Andrei Stenin Contest, we have invited previous Grand Prix winners to join the jury panel. These photographers, who came from various countries, have since become esteemed masters, each offering their unique expert perspectives.

They have demonstrated exceptional professionalism by meticulously selecting outstanding works from a vast and diverse pool of submitted photographs for the shortlist. I encourage everyone to visit our competition website and explore these selections. The creativity of young photographers continues to inspire us, and we are pleased to support them as they embark on their careers.”
