Taras Shevchenko’s creative work is immortal. His literature, drawings, and paintings definitely should not be hostages to the political battles of our days. Therefore, Rossotrudnichestvo, with the support of International News Agency «Rossiya segodnya», holds a competition of contemporary poets — «Shevchenko's Day» on March 10. Citizens of Russia, Ukraine, as well as compatriots living in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) can take part in the contest.

Competition conditions: by March 4, 2021, those who would like to participate in the contest have to send their works - author's poetry in Russian or Ukrainian languages by e-mail konkurs@rs.gov.ru with a note in the subject line «Shevchenko's Day».

Age, profession and style of presentation do not matter. Remember the main thing - our competition is out of politics, and therefore the selected topics should also be out of politics. The world is large and diverse, and especially the Russian-Ukrainian world the symbol of which without doubt is Taras Shevchenko. We are sure there are many stories that will inspire you.

On March 10, at the site of the International News Agency «Rossiya segodnya», the finalists will present their works in the format of online-readings. The winners will be determined by the jury.
