The contest for special prizes named after Prokopiy Saltykov, Leonid Laptsuy and Sergey Irikov was started in the region. Authors should write materials in languages of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. Applications are received till the 28th of April in the department on affairs of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North of Yamal.
As the press-service of the governor of Yamal informs, an author, who writes in Nenets, Khanty and Selkoup languages, can become a candidate. The following topics are suggested: “Native speech”, “The community – yesterday, today, tomorrow”, “Yamal is my home” and “Family”. Three prizes in 50 thousand rubles each will be given to winners.
As we should remind, a pensioner from Nadym Nikita Anagurichi became the winner of the prize last year for the best presentation of the theme of the contest in Nenets language. “Kak lyudi u sinego morya zhivut” (“How people live near the blue sea”) is his contest work. Antonina Syazi – a fisherwoman from Katravozh, Priuralskiy district – took the first place among authors writing in Khanty languages. She publishes her works in the regional newspaper in Khanty language “Lukh Avt”. A correspondent of the TV Company “Alliance” from Krasnoselkoup Yevgeniya Smorgunova became the best among authors writing in Selkoup language.
