Second All-Russian “Entrepreneurship in Russia: Stories, Successes and Challenges” Journalism Competition

ANO Agency for Strategic Initiatives to Promote New Projects (ASI) is holding the Second All-Russian “Entrepreneurship in Russia: Stories, Successes and Challenges” Journalism Competition.

The main theme for this year is the investment climate in Russia.

“One of the Agency’s priorities is to create a favourable image of the entrepreneur in Russia – one that is associated with prestige. Our objective is to draw as much attention as possible to the success stories of entrepreneurs, the realisation of the national entrepreneurial initiative, and regional standards and efforts to improve the investment climate in the Russian Federation,” says ASI General Director Andrei Nikitin.

The main objective of the Competition is to promote the image of the entrepreneur as an individual that espouses active citizenship and social responsibility. It also aims to challenge the stereotypes and negative attitude to entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in Russia.

The Agency for Strategic Initiatives invites professional staff and freelance journalists, registered federal and regional media — television channels, radio stations, printed media, Internet-TV and Internet media, as well as representatives of social networks — to participate in the Competition in 2013.
