TASS hosted a press conference dedicated to the launch of the second international contest of information projects for foreign media – The Honest View Media Award.
TV BRICS is the international media partner of the competition.
The participants of the conference spoke about the objectives, conditions of participation and nominations of the contest, as well as about the coverage by foreign authors of humanitarian projects with Russian participation aimed at expanding economic, social and cultural co-operation with other countries.
Applications for the contest for foreign media “Honest View” will be accepted until 21 November, and the results will be summed up before the New Year. The main nominations this year are: “High-Tech Production”, “Social and Humanitarian Issues”, “Development of territories”, “International cultural partnership with Russia”, “Promising Industries”, “Journalism and Documentary”.
In addition, the organisers plan to introduce several joke nominations for those who write about Russia in different ways, said Anton Chermensky, Head of the Information Policy Department of The Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States (Rossotrudnichestvo).
The organiser of the contest, the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, has decided to award the winners with cash prizes. The prize fund amounts to 2.5 million roubles.
The contest is open to editorial offices of mass media, including TV, radio and Internet publications, print media, individual authors, including photojournalists and bloggers who have reached the age of 18.
The selection of works will take place in two stages. First, the experts will form a short-list, weeding out unsuitable publications. Then the jury will select the winners. In addition to the applications that will be submitted to the contest, the jury will independently select publications about Russia by monitoring the information space.
The main goal of the contest is to identify and encourage foreign media representatives (authors of TV, radio, print and Internet publications) for objective and comprehensive coverage of humanitarian projects with Russian participation, which are aimed at expanding economic, social and cultural co-operation.
