«Only mountains can be better than mountains» A prize was established in the framework of the international competition “Open Eurasia” for the best work dedicated to the mountains

So leave unnecessary disputes —
I have already proved everything to myself:
Only mountains can be better than mountains,
Which I haven’t been to yet.
(Vladimir Vysotsky)

A long climb, mountain air, a heavy backpack, songs to the guitar, a smouldering fire, the milky way overhead and countless stars in the sky and in the distance the desired peak that will be conquered. Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? You will have the opportunity to feel it for yourself soon. The Open Eurasia competition presents the award named after Arkadiy Bezrukov together with the travel company «Ak-Sai travel» for the best work about the mountains.

The Open Eurasia international competition has been held since 2012. During the eight years of its existence, representatives from more than 80 countries participated in the competition, which supports and promotes the creativity of the Eurasian region in their works.

In 2018, as part of the Republican exhibition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Komsomol, the prize named after Arkadiy Bezrukov received Irina Kiyanova and Marlan Nysanbayev for their artistic works dedicated to the Komsomol construction site BAM. In 2020, the award is again held as part of the Open Eurasia competition. The purpose of the award is to select the best work related to the theme of mountains, Hiking, and mountaineering.
