This year, 357 people from 64 Russian regions and 11 countries of Near and Far Abroad applied for the competition. NSPU 3-year student Eric Galyautdinov managed to pass the most challenging competitive selection in the nomination “Future of the Sports journalism”. The young man sent a journalistic story on first Olympic achievements of the Novosibirsk sportsmen in Tokyo. He wrote about Sofia Pozdnyakova’s difficult path to the Olympic medals and hardship of the Siberian athletes and their coaches in the competition.
- No doubt, work of a sports journalist during the Olympic Games appears to be more challenging because of the difference in time zones. You have to be constantly in touch with many departments, athletes' coaches and relatives. Despite all this, the Olympic Games are a great celebration for everyone involved in the sports industry, so creating works of different sizes and genres becomes a piece of cake. During the Olympics in Tokyo I had collected dozens of materials but then I decided to send this one, which is the best in my opinion.
Now the selection committee and the jury members will have to assess the work of the contestants and distribute the places from the first to the third.
- It is a very exciting moment now as you can’t turn back, you have to win, especially because our excellent teachers of the Department of Journalism, Elena Yurievna Agamyan, Elena Veniaminovna Evdokimova and Lilia Nikolaevna Kislaya, have given me theoretical and practical knowledge to be the first, - shared his dream the journalist.
The competition results will be announced at the Awards ceremony in Moscow on November 25.
