SK MOST’s Russky Bridge Gains Extra Exposure Through the “Vladivostok: Bridges and People” Photo Contest

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

On the 30th of April, 2013, a large photography contest was launched in the Primorsky region of Russia by the local administration and PrimaMedia, a large news source in the Primorsky area. The contest was open to both professional and hobby photographers, and the submission deadline was June 1st. Those participating were encouraged to submit their photographs of local bridges with two categories in mind. In the first category, “A Bridge into the Future”, the contestant must present their chosen photographed bridge as a symbol of the constantly growing and changing Primorsky region. Within the second category, which can be roughly translated to “People on Bridges”, the goal of the photograph is to show the relationship between the people of the Primorsky region, and the bridges which they’ve seen erected in the past years in and around their cities.

The contest exhibition, held at the Primorsky region administration building, shows a collection of photographs chosen from the nearly 2,500 submissions as the finest and most relevant. One of the most often photographed bridges, The Russky Bridge, is pictured in almost every second photo. Images of all kinds crop up, from images of the completed bridge, to the bridge in the middle of construction. A couple of photos even show SK MOST workers in the midsts of construction, and residents of Vladivostok capturing their friends and family crossing the enormous bridge. The exhibition has drawn a lot of attention from residents and media sources alike.

With the contest closed, judges now have to make the difficult choice of naming three winners. On June 3rd, the judges gathered to rate the photographs, and will announce the results and names of winners on June 5th.

The panel of judges consists of a variety of local representatives such as the governor of the Primorsky region Vladimir Mikushevsky, general director of PrimaMedia Victor Sukhanov, the general director of Vostokshintorg Group of Companies Dmitry Tsarev, and the head of public communications at PAO ESV East, Nadezhda Rukina. Along with the aforementioned persons, the judging panel also involves a local regional ethnologist, Tamara Naidin, blogger Alexey Zorin, and two photographers, Danil Sigidin and Victor Serebryakov.

With one of the main focuses of this contest being SK MOST’s recent project, the Russky Bridge, an expert from the company itself was invited onto the panel of judges. The deputy general director of OJSC USK MOST Vladivostok, Alexey Baranov will take part in deciding whose photographs will be the winners in the “Bridges and People” contest.

Participation from SK MOST in the contest does not only come from the judging side of things. A few of the company’s employees, including Andrey Savin, Igor Lishuk and Vadim Skorobogatko have submitted their bridge photographs, and are among the 2,500 hopeful contestants in the running for first, second and third places, each with its respective prize. The first place winner will receive a Canon EOS-650D digital camera to pursue their photography endeavours, the second place winner will receive an iPad mini, and third place takes home a digital photo frame.

Selected photographs will remain on display at the Primorsky region administration building, and will be available for viewing up until the 15th of June.
