In addition, organizers plan to present several humorous nominations for those who write about Russia in different ways, the head of Rossotrudnichestvo’s information policy department, Anton Chermensky said.
The contest is open to media outlets, including television, radio, online publications, print media, individual authors, including photojournalists and bloggers over 18 years old.
The selection of entries will take place in two stages. First, experts will create a short list, eliminating inappropriate publications. The jury will then select the winners.
In addition to the entries submitted to the contest, the jury will independently choose publications about Russia by monitoring of the information space.
