Center for Contemporary Art WINZAVOD announces the launch of the 10th anniversary of the "Best of Russia" project. In 2018, the largest Russian project dedicated to photography is 10 years old.
Acceptance of works will last until December 17, 2017.
Best of Russia is an unprecedented project. By combining famous photographers and novice amateur photographers, giving them the opportunity to participate on equal terms and without restricting the choice of photographs and topics, he formed an incredibly personal and at the same time objective view of 10 years of Russian history.
Almost three hundred thousand pictures from tens of thousands of people captured everything that excites each of them separately - and, as a consequence, society as a whole. Every year in photos Best of Russia conveys its atmosphere and, considering photos of participants and winners of the project, we can recall a whole decade from the life of the country.
Over the years, much has happened. And photography from the simple fascination of many has become a way of life for millions of people. There were new technical possibilities for shooting, editorial programs, an infinite number of filters, everything that makes any "average" picture spectacular and very beautiful. But on the Best of Russia project it was always important not so much the technical superiority of the author and the external impeccability of the image, but the real emotion and strong utterance. Sometimes naive, but always honest, the photos of the winners of Best of Russia could reflect all the most important things that happened to us during these 10 years, everything that somehow changed all of us.
Together with the project, a whole new generation of photographers of reportage, animalistic, fashion photography has grown up. Unknown outside their small city, professional authors were able to show their work to a wide audience, and star photographers - to test themselves again in fair competition.
In its jubilee and last year for the project, Best of Russia decided to abandon the nominations "Nature", "Architecture", "Style". This year the reception of works will go only in the nomination "People. Developments. Daily life "as the most fully reflecting the atmosphere of time and its dimension.
A special theme of the project this year is the festive - "Jubilees". Best of Russia plans to celebrate its 10th anniversary with an unusual exhibition and album, but this holiday is impossible without the participants of the project. How does a resident of Russia celebrate jubilees? In a huge country, where more than 190 peoples live, great holidays are celebrated in very different ways - and we are waiting for a variety of traditions, personal stories related to them. The photo can also capture the birthday of a family member, and the anniversary of the institution in which the author of photography is studying or working; Victory Day, anniversary of the wedding.
The Expert Council of the project, consisting of jury members of different years, will determine the winners of this year and the 100 best pictures of the project for 10 years, which will be presented at the exhibition in the spring of 2018 at the Center for Contemporary Art WINZAVOD.
