This international contest is held by the Russian Union of Journalists and by the Moscow State University by M.V. Lomonosov with the assistance of several public organizations. This already traditional project is devoted to the 70th anniversary of the battle for Moscow in 2011.

There are no any professional or age limitations for participation in the contest. The jury will consider literary works (articles, short stories, poems, novels, memoirs, presentations etc), photo-works, podcasts (in the form of separate sound and video files), sites and blogs.

The results are planned to be summed up in the beginning of December 2011 at the solemn forum of the Russian Union of Journalists, devoted to the 70th anniversary of the defeat of the German-fascist troops under Moscow.

More than 100 people have become laureates in various nominations and some of them have been rewarded with the diplomas of the Russian Federation Council and the Russian Union of Journalists.
