Photo and idea contest: Open Ukraine for the World. Deadline 30 May 2015

 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.
