Magical Hungary photo exhibition at the Hungarian Agricultural Museum

The world of national parks portrayed through the most beautiful nature photos in the country. Magical Hungary photo exhibition can be visited in the Hungarian Agricultural Museum in Budapest from 1 June to 18 July 2021. The winning photos of the 2020 competition will be presented in the exhibition. The Magical Hungary competition is the most exciting nature photography competition in the country, in which photographers compete in a nine-month long championship. Candidates receive recognition on a monthly basis, but the main challenge is to be at the top of the list out of hundreds of photographers based on the scores they receive for their year-long photography performance. If you want to be one of the most successful photographers of MH, it’s not enough to take a single, outstandingly good picture - you have to be out in nature all year long and take special photos. Magical Hungary is more than a photo competition, it’s a professional platform where nature photographers can exchange ideas with the professional jury and fellow photographers, motivate each other, and develop during an exciting year-round competition. Every year a beautiful photo album is made from the most beautiful pictures of the competition season, along with a high-volume exhibition, which the general public can admire at prestigious exhibition venues.
