Community initiative “Restoring Donbas” extends the submitting of works for the competition «Donbas: peace in objective lens» until October 31, 2015. Such decision was made in response to numerous requests from our subscribers in social networks.
The main goal of the photo contest – to make Donetsk and Luhansk regions closer, more understandable for millions of people, who are living in Ukraine. According to activists of the community initiative, Events in the East of Ukraine led to the fact that people started to forget the essence of real Donbas before ATO. Unfortunately, plethora people did not know it. They associated Donetsk and Luhansk regions exclusively with plants and mines.
Elena Petryaeva – the head of the initiative – stated: “In Ukraine people know some few about Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Conclusions about “What is Donbas?” are usually made from news, TV programs or stereotypes. We would like to show the beauty and versatility of Donbas through the prism of the photograph. We want to demonstrate different and interesting people, who are living there”.
Let us recall that September 1, 2015 community initiative “Restoring Donbas” announces the beginning of submitting the works on the photo contest “Donbas: peace in objective lens”.
