In 2021, the Budapest office of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung initiated a photo contest for 18-30 year old Hungarians all over the country. In our call, we asked applicants to show through a photo what their biggest challenge is, or what they think about family or politics. The photo competition goes hand in hand with our recently published youth research: our goal was to supplement the findings of the study with the photos, to color the results of the research and to make the problems, challenges, motivations and thoughts of young Hungarians visible through the pictures. The award-winning photos can be seen in our virtual gallery, the newly opened FES-Arena under the following link.
