Founded in 1907
On April 20, 2018, Plekhanov University held an annual talent show "Mr. PRUE".
For "Mr. PRUE" it is a jubilee 10th year on the stage of Congress Center. During the whole period, the contest was distinguished by different themes and genres, starting from the "superhero" theme and finishing with the concept "Gentlemen are always in fashion". However, in 2018, "Mr. PRUE" radically changed: it was decided to move away from the image of a person and a secular man and tie everything to the famous modern American TV show – "Top model in American". Thus, the project began to rely on the concept of a more modern man, which allowed opening a huge scope for creativity.
The selection for the project took place in two stages: questioning and casting. As a result, nine participants from different faculties and courses, including the mysterious "Mr. X", whose identity became known shortly before the final of the project, passed to the final of the competition. After the selection, the finalists began an active and long training: they had to participate in several photo shoots, as well as training in the art of fashion shows and the passage of the sports stage.
The jury: Natalia Alexeeva, deputy head of Socio-educational Work Department, Anastasia Shumkova, Miss Plekhanov University – 2015, first Vice-Miss of Moscow Students, Alik Mayt, songs author, labels artist of Hitmakers and Zion music, Veronika Astafyeva, chairperson of Student council of PRUE, Diana Gayfadjan, head of marketing department of "TM LIMITED", Alexandr Perevalov and Elena Notchenko, representatives of a sport studio "Reboot", Nikolay Prokofyev, designer of 2112, Anastasia Abramovich, participant of "Dances on TNT" show, Maria Pospelova, chief organizer of "Mr. PRUE – 2016".
The show was divided into several stages: intellectual, defile and creative, where every one of the participants demonstrated his talent.
Soulful and stirring vocal performances, energetic dances, extraordinary acting performances, a basketball room, and even a stand-up.
The jury took into account the points for photoshoots and a sports stage, which had been known before the final stage; for the intellectual contest and defile, and they estimated complexion of the participants, their work with the audience, an individual item and a calling card (a short video before the item). According to the results, the title "Mr. PRUE – 2018" went to Sattor Gafforov, a 2nd year student from IBS-Plekhanov, and "Vice-Mister PRUE – 2018" went to a freshman from Faculty of Trade Economics and Commodity Science Miroslav Eletskiy, who also won in the nomination "Audience Choice Award".
Daniil Artemyev, a 4th year student from Faculty of Hotel, Restaurant, Tourism and Sport Industry won in the nomination "Best art item", and his faculty won in "Best cheerleaders".
We congratulate all the participants and wish them success in study and further victories!
