On Saturday, March 20, the traditional award ceremony was held at the VI international tennis tournament St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy. The tournament organizers announced the names of the best journalists, photographers, bloggers as well as the results of the artists’ contest “Tennis and St.Petersburg is Tennisburg”.
On behalf of the tournament organizing committee we would like to thank everyone who participated in our events and activities.
It is the second year in a row when we are working with COVID-19 restrictions.
And we ought to restrict journalists’ access to the press-center and photographers – to photo center and court photo positions at SIBUR ARENA.
We do hope that we all will come back to the normal life soon and will work in the usual and comfortable regimen.
There are two nominations this year: “Best photographer of the tournament” (the award takes its name after Vyacheslav Shorikov) and “Best media of the tournament).
Vyacheslav’s widow Galina was taking part in the award ceremony. She handed over a diploma and the prize to Elena Mikheeva (SPORTBOX.RU), the best correspondent of this year. And St. Petersburg TV channel won in the “Best media on the tournament” nomination.
