Around 40 photo shots by reporters from Russia, Iran, Bahrain, India, Bangladesh, China, Spain, and France are among others on display at the International Photography Festival-Xposure until March 5, 2024, in the city of Sharjah, UAE.

This is the second time Stenin Contest participants have made their way there, with the debut show first held in February 2023. Prior to the UAE stop, the Stenin Contest road show also toured South Africa, Argentina, Serbia, Ethiopia and the Congo.

“The Xposure Festival is well known, both among the Russian and international photo community. I believe that today it is an important festival platform. Our Stenin contest, being Russia’s only such international platform that discovers young aspiring photographers, is happy to join this ambitious event once again,” the contest’s Executive Director Alexander Shtol commented.

Xposure-2024 includes displays and themed expositions, as well as seminars and workshops given by photo experts and meetings with manufacturers of professional photo and video equipment, plus various competitions, including the Xposure Awards ceremony.

Xposure-2024 will also kickstart a new international film festival, showcasing multi-genre feature films and shorts.

One can apply for the Stenin Photo Contest-2024 on the Russian, English, and Chinese official websites. Participants aged 18 to 33 can submit their single shots and photo series before March 15, 2024, in five categories: Top News, Sports, My Planet, Portrait - A Hero of Our Time, and Top View.
