The photo contest "The Most Beautiful Country" is a large-scale media project, in which tens of thousands photographers participate annually. The competition is dedicated to the preservation of wildlife of Russia and the promotion of careful attitude to the environment. It was held for the first time in 2015. About 400 thousand pictures were uploaded to the site of the project: photo.rgo.ru during four years of existence of the contest. The main condition is that the photo should be taken in Russia.

"Our project has caused a great public resonance from the very beginning, the exhibitions are successfully exhibited all over the world. We are glad that Rossotrudnichestvo is among our partners", said Ilya Gurov, the Deputy Executive Director of the Russian Geographical Society.

"We are watching the work of the Russian Geographical Society with great interest. We believe that its activities largely contribute to preserving Russia's historical, cultural and natural heritage and creating a positive image of our country abroad. We believe that the joint work of Rossotrudnichestvo and the RGS will give this work additional impact and will arise foreign public interest not only to the unique natural wealth of Russia, but also to our country in general", - said head of Rossotrudnichestvo Eleonora Mitrofanova.

The opening of the exhibitions was timed to the Day of Russia.
