Contest hopes to bring attention to Russian provincial museums.

The international photography competition Museum. Dialogue organized by the Vladimir Potanin Charity Fund is now accepting applications. The fund invites submissions from professional and amateur photographers from all over the world who have taken pictures of provincial Russian museums that are part of the Fund’s grant program. The program currently includes 359 cultural spaces from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok.

Over the past 17 years the fund has supported Russian museums in their attempts to improve their work. The fund’s goal is to help cultural spaces adapt to the modern world and to support examples of museum best practices in Russia.

The contest Museum. Dialogue offers participants the opportunity to depict these museums through photography. According to the organizers, “Instead of simply capturing exhibits or actions in a museum, the competition participant has to create and present a visual image of meaning and content of all the changes happening in the internal and external museum environment.”

The contest is composed of the following categories: Museum: Dialogue with Surroundings, Museum: Dialogue with a New Audience, Museum: Dialogue with a Professional, as well as the special category of Museum Selfie. A participant may present no more than three works in each category, including a series of 1-3 photographs linked by a common subject or idea.

To apply e-mail your submission by September 30, 2016 to: design@photounion.ru.
