Photographer Natalia Okoneshnikova wins at major international photo contest

Yakut food photographer Natalia Okoneshnikova was among the winners of the international competition 35Awards. Two of her works won the nomination "Food photo: honey."

"It's so gratifying that a photographer from a far small town of 300 thousand people has achieved good results. And in general, it's so great that anyone from any small town or village, even from far Yakutia, can participate in an international competition on the "Internet sleigh," the photographer writes on her Instagram.

Okoneshnikova has been participating in this competition for the third year. In 2019, she reached the final of the main competition with a still life, and two pictures were included in the annual catalog of winners. Then she took second place with peas in the nomination "Food photo," then first place in the nomination "Sweet desserts" with a pancake cake.
