With the active support of the project partners a list of objects of cultural, natural and historical heritage of each of 25 Finno-Ugric and Samoyedic nations was compiled on the basis of the media-centre. The title of a “wonder” was given to the winners in four categories: nature, culture, monuments and constructions, and holidays. With assistance of the experts there was gathered unique information about the Finno-Ugric and Samoyedic heritage, which had not been previously known to the wide audience. Each internet-user had an opportunity of entering new objects in the list. In the course of the contest, over 400 object descriptions had been sent, as well as large amount of photos, video- and audio stuff.
