    NEW DELHI (Sputnik) - An exhibition of works by winners of the Andrei Stenin International Photo Contest opens on Friday in the Indian capital of New Delhi.

    The All India Fine Arts & Crafts Society gallery will display several dozens of photos taken by the world's best young photojournalists who won this year in the prestigious international competition organised by Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency under the auspices of the Russian Commission for UNESCO. The exhibition has already been held in Moscow, Budapest, Cape Town, New York, and Italy's San Donato Milanese.

    The Indian exhibition will cover a wide spectrum of topics, including forced migration, the preservation of one's ethnic distinctiveness, ecology, social volunteering and animal protection.

    India is represented by Santanu Dey's colourful ethnographic series on the ancient Kolkata's vanishing professions, Debarchan Chatterjee's documentation of protests' against the crackdown on the country's lower and middle classes, and vivid depictions of sporting activities by Amit Moulick and Ayanava Sil.

    The Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest was launched in memory of Russian photojournalist Andrei Stenin, killed in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine on August 6, 2014, after his car was shot at and burned on a highway.

    Its main goal is to support young photographers and draw public attention to the challenges of modern photojournalism. The contest is a platform for young photographers who are talented, empathetic and open-minded as they draw our attention to people and events around us.
