About

The Association of Hungarian Photographers is the principal association for photography in Hungary. Since its foundation, the Association has been active in popularizing and researching Hungarian photography. It has supported the development of photographic culture in Hungary through its grants and awards.
With almost three hundred members, the Association comprises the leading exponents of Hungarian photographic art. Indeed, most of the Association’s members have been awarded art prizes in Hungary. Over the course of its six decades of existence, the Association’s membership has included such important figures in Hungarian photography as Angelo, Nándor Bárány, Cornell Capa, Károly Escher, Kata Kálmán, Gábor Kerekes, György Lőrinczy, Lucien Hervé, József Pécsi, Dénes Rónai and Ernő Vadas.
In 1977, the Association founded the Studio of Young Photographers, which it still operates. The Studio is the leading professional organization for young Hungarian photographers.
The tasks of the Association include the holding of photography exhibitions and professional events, as well as supporting the realization of the artistic goals of university students in Hungary by means of its scholarship programme. Founded in 2016, the scholarship programme – which was announced on the sixtieth anniversary of the Association’s founding – will, each year, offer three students studying at higher education institutions in Hungary opportunities to undertake creative work and present their work.
The Association’s research programme supports the realization of research on Hungarian photography, embracing such disciplines as Aesthetics, Art History, Media Studies, Sociology and Economics.
