Tuvan Actor is a Candidate for the Title “Siberian of the Year”

Tuvan actor Eduard Ondar, who plays the title role in the film “Secret of Genghis Khan”, the premiere of which successfully transpired in many regions of Russia, was nominated as a candidate for the title of “Siberian of the Year”. Altogether 32 candidates for this title were nominated by the internet portals of various regions of Siberia. After internet voting, which will take place on the site during the seven work days and two non-working days – from March 31 to April 8, seven Siberians with the greatest number of votes will receive the honorary title “Siberian – 2008”.

Albert Kuvezhin, musician, singer, poet, leader of Tuvan ethno-rock group Yat-Kha,

the winner of many European musical awards and one of the winners of the voting for “Siberian-2005”, will take the role of an independent expert.

Albert now lives in his native Kyzyl. He is working on many projects, including

the finalizing of his solo album, recorded on the island Jura in Scotland, he has his own program on FM-Radio “Voice of Asia”, and works with the Tuvan state symphonic orchestra.

The main goal of the project “Siberian of the Year” is to tell the wide public about remarkable people who are our contemporaries. The project is completely non-commercial, all the activities are done on voluntary basis.

There are no pre-requisites for entering this contest, in the first place– there is only the name of the entrant and the reason for his nomination. Any person can be nominated and win, from any social status, from any region of Russia, citizen of any country in the world. The most important thing is that the activities of the candidates during 2008 should maximally reflect the values of the project - For the good of Siberia, for the glory of Siberia!


Scientists and inventors

Galina Afanasyeva-Medvedeva (Irkutsk) – author of the dictionary “Govori russkikh storozhilov Baikalskoy Sibiri” (Russian dialects of Baikal Siberia).

Vyacheslav Verevochkin, a military technology constructor from Novosibirsk , a “Siberian Kulibin”, inhabitant of the town Bolshoy Oyesh in Kolyvansky district (Novosibirsk region). With his own hands, he makes exact replicas of tanks (all of them functional, shooting little pieces of wood), made a big holiday for the people, and gave them rides on a “German” tank.

As is traditional, not a few cultural workers are among the candidates:

Anatoliy Movlyan, artist, opened a school of portraiture in Omsk, the only one of its kind in Siberia, and possibly in Russia.

Elena Veselkova – one of the founders of the school of internet-journalism in Irkutsk , died tragically as a result of a motor vehicle accident last year.

Egor Letov (Omsk), “the most genuine of all the famous rock-musicians of Russia”, whose death in 2008, in the opinion of experts, marked the boundary, in the rock music of this country, between Time and Timelessness.

For the first time, someone was nominated for a story written almost a quarter of a century ago - Viktor Astafyev (1924-2001), is a writer-war veteran, whose story “Hunting gudgeon in Georgia”, became in the opinion of experts the most relevant literary work of 2008.

Also for the first time, but already a part of history, the title of “Miss World” was won by a Siberian - Ksenia Sukhinova, a beauty from Nizhnevartovsk , a student of one of the universities of Tyumen.

With the crisis, nobody is in the mood for miracles. The experts remind us – it is not because of Putin, it is thanks to Dasha, that the government promised to build a school and many other things in the settlement of Tugnui in Mukhorshibirski district.
