Of all the pictures, the jury selected only 000 - strictly according to the number of nominations. 13 prize-winning shots were taken in the Far East of the country - in the Primorsky and Khabarovsk regions.

Vitaly Berkov from Primorsky Krai thought over his winning shot in the nomination "The World is in Our Hands" for two years. The picture is multi-layered: in the foreground are fragile figures of children, behind them is a carpet of lotuses on the lake surface, then sketches from the railway track, and a powerful industrial backdrop with "towers" - cooling towers of the thermal power station.

“I show the contrast between nature, industry and man, fitting everything in one frame,” says Vitaly Berkov. - And at the same time I demonstrate that their peaceful coexistence is possible. Over the 2 of the year, I made 5 trips to Karasinoye Lake to catch this photo, and the full 2 of the day was there. I did not achieve the ideal, I also wanted good thunderclouds. I am an environmental engineer by profession, ”continues the seaside photographer. - When the state district power station was going to be built on this lake, it was based on the presence of a natural reservoir. Now the CHP is in working condition, but no longer any discharges of warm water into this lotus lake are done. ” According to Vitaly Berkov, a relic plant appeared there either thanks to the former mayor of the village of Artyomovsky, or to the chief engineer of the power plant itself, residents of the town of Artyom still argue about this.

According to the RGO, the best deep-water frame of this year is from a professional diver and photographer. Andrey Shpataka. He shot an underwater flower of jellyfish-cyanea in one of the bays of the Primorsky Territory.

“In some years we have a lot of jellyfish, and most of them are in the bay in front of the entrance to the bucket of the Rudnaya bay,” says the photographer. - In October, a situation may develop that 10 days ideal weather and excellent visibility, although this is an industrial area. It is very convenient there: the depth is shallow, but there is a lot of light. This is the first time I've seen a jellyfish wrapped in a flower shape. " Andrey Shpatak gave advice to novice photographers: “Shoot a lot, and you will eventually succeed. In order to shoot something new, you do not have to travel far, it is likely that it is under your nose, "- I'm sure Andriy Shpatak.

16-year-old Aglaya Tsidulko from Moscow was awarded in the nomination "Best Young Photographer" for a landscape from Reineke Island (Sea of ​​Okhotsk, Khabarovsk Territory). True, the jury "relocated" the foggy rock to the Sea of ​​Japan, to the Primorsky Territory, where there is an island of the same name. And if the archipelago of Empress Eugenia does not experience a fog deficit, then there are definitely no such stones on the seaside Reineck.

“We went from Sakhalin Island to the Shantar Islands with the Boomerang club and at the same time did a record of marine mammals. On the way we came across Reineke Island, Aglaya Tsidulko told East Russia. This played a cruel joke. We made holes in both catamarans and in the end stood for a while and waited for them to dry out and the glue hardened. As soon as we moved away from the island, the weather became completely worse and the fog crept out from behind the rocks. islands, I managed to take it off, "shared the winner of the All-Russian competition.
