The first contest work presents the nomination “Tourist Routes of Eurasia. The Nature of My Region.”

The author of the photo, a music teacher of the Gymnasium # 15 “Sodruzhestvo” from Novosibirsk Daria Ashpina told the story of the photo “Don't miss the moment” taken in the Altai Republic. “We were very tired after a long journey to the village of Chemal and decided to settle down near the bank of the Turquoise Katun. The first thought that came to my mind was: “We need to go ashore, relax, think and dream.” And it was the moment when I caught this beautiful sunset. It amazed me with its color saturation. The sunset seemed to cover the mountains, and on this background even the river seemed calm.”

The Eurasian Youth Assembly launched the International Youth Project - the creative competition DISCOVER EURASIA in July 2020. This year the project is aimed to create a collection of unique photographs, as well as forming an international youth asset of the Assembly “Young Photographers of Eurasia”. The project is aimed at developing the dialogue between representatives of the youth and cultural figures of the continent, and will also become a necessary platform for realizing the creative potential of young talents of Eurasia.
