Winners of the 36th Hungarian Press Photo Awards, the best press photos of the previous year, were announced in Budapest and will be on display at the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center during the Budapest Spring Festival.
The Hungarian Press Photo Exhibition has been a celebration of Hungarian press photographers and photography for over three decades, and a part of the Budapest Spring Festival for many years. The exhibition selects from the 2263 entries submitted to the competition, which was organized by the National Association of Hungarian Journalists (MÚOSZ).
Most of the contestants are Hungarian photographers, but as in previous years, the competition was open to all. The works on view are award-winning individual photos (news items) and series (reportage), made in 2017 and submitted in a total of fourteen categories. The award ceremony will be held on 29 March, while the exhibition at the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center opens during the Budapest Spring Festival (30 March-22 April 2018).
The international jury of the competition said it evaluated 6259 pictures from 234 photographers before naming the Grand Prize winners as well as the best three photos in each of the fourteen categories.
