Online presentation for nominees and winners of the prestigious international contest Black and White Spider Awards devoted to black-and-white photography was held on May 29. The award panel included prominent figures and companies engaged into photography and contemporary art (Leica Photo Gallery, Epson Kunstbetrieb, L’ile Aux Images, Phillips de Pury & Company, Magnum Photos, Sotheby's Institute of Art and others). The winners came from such countries as Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa, Australia, USA, Germany, France, Mozambique, Canada, India, Brazil, Malta, Switzerland, Egypt, Poland, Hungary, Italy, Croatia, Romania, Israel, Malaysia, Japan, Turkey, Slovenia, Macao and Croatia.
I’m glad to tell you that, having secured the premier place in the Fashion category, I was both the only winner coming from Russia and the absolute winner of the contest. As a result of my efforts, I was honoured the main prize – Photographer of the Year, for outstanding achievements in the area of professional photography.

I sincerely thank the contest organizers and the award panel; I’m proud of making a contribution to the development and popularization of the modern photography.
