#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The interregional public organization KMNSOYUZ is holding a photo competition The World through the Eyes of Indigenous Peoples. Culture, Traditions, Everyday Life.

More than 200 works have already been sent to the competition from almost all regions in whose territories indigenous ethnic groups live. Participants surprise with a careful and accurate reflection of the world around them: whether it is a part of a national holiday or an everyday sketch, a majestic picture of nature or soulful portraits of people.

Representatives of all regional associations of indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East of Russia received invitations to join the jury.

The jury was headed by Alexander Himushin, an ethnic photographer and traveler collaborating with UNESCO, a partner of the UN Human Rights Commission, winner of international exhibitions, an inquisitive researcher who has traveled to more than 80 countries, and has been on expeditions for the last nine years.

Alexander Himushin’s large photo exhibition about the world’s indigenous peoples opened in July this year at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris with the support of Nornickel. Some of the photographs were taken by the author in Taimyr.

Until September 19, the organizing committee accepts photographs that represent all spheres of life of indigenous peoples – traditional crafts or holidays, ancient rituals or pictures of everyday life, relationships with nature and family values.

According to the results, five winners will be determined: I, II, III places, as well as the winner of the special nomination Taimyr is the Heart of the Arctic and Internet voting, which will be held on the page of the competition. There you can also get acquainted with the details of the competition and the regulations of the competition.
