What way the beauty is being born? What does a person who has witnessed the mystery of nature feel? These questions were answered by Timur Gayfullin from the Ulyanovsk region in 2015. Hemade a picture of a caterpillar and sent his work to the I-st All-Russian photo contest «The most beautiful country». That was the only one work sent by the photographer. And it won.
«Walking by the small village, I saw this lump. He straightened himself on his legs and seemed to be posing ...I am glad that I was able to fix that moment, when the beauty, which is not being got by many people, is becoming universally recognized beauty», - Timur told.
The majestic beauty of protected lakes, arctic icebergs, geysers, waterfalls and volcanoes. The beauty of sea, taiga and forest inhabitants. The beauty of the man himself, who lives in remote corners of the country, preserving culture and following national traditions - all this can be seen at a glance thanks to the photo competition of the Russian Geographical Society «The most beautiful country».
«The most beautiful country» photo contest - is a scale media project of the Russian Geographical Society, aimed at the maintaining of the nature of Russia and fostering respect for the environment through the art of photography. The photo contest took place in 2015 for the first time and caused a wide public response. The contest has become annual from the year of 2016. About 23 thousand Russian and foreign photographers took part in the competition, who sent about 110 thousand photographs for the contest.
For the third year the pictures of Russia, sent to our competition, please, surprise, make us think and admire. We are being sent the works of very different participants with a unique look at the world around us. Someone likes to take pictures of landscapes, someone with their pictures attracts attention to environmental problems. Some photographers try to catch rare moments from the life of wildlife. But they are all inspired by one thing - love to their native country and the desire to share the beauty captured on the camera.
«The Most Beautiful Country» unites. According to the results of each photo contest further exhibitions of works of finalists and winners are being held all over Russia and abroad – at the international festivals, conferences, in the embassies, theaters and cultural centers.
