 Victor Migalchan together with Vladimir and Tatiana Mikhailovy Studio have launched the photo project, Open Ukraine for the World – ‪#‎openUKRAINEfortheWorld‬. The goal is to collect ideas and photographs which present Ukraine at its best and to show a never-before-seen Ukraine.

Works will not be accepted if they contain elements of unethical profanity; violate human rights or honor; bear fragments of aggression or violence, racial, national, ethnic, or religious discrimination, or nudity.
