Aims and activities of the organisation 

A non-profit organization that acts in the public interest. With its history going back to 1896 and its membership consisting of journalists, editors, photographers, cartoonists, designers, and PR experts, it is Hungary’s oldest and largest media entity. The Hungarian Press Photography Competition and Exhibition, which has been running for more than four decades, is the association’s most influential event. It performs professional, advocacy, educational and cultural activities to defend the values of democracy, the freedom to inform and be informed. Quality education is provided through the Bálint György Journalism Academy. Its headquarter is not only home to media events, but also one of Budapest’s training and cultural venue.

MUOSZ mobilizes a network of individual journalists for on-the-ground implementation of information measures in Hungary. Simultaneously, a dissemination network comprising various media outlets collaborates to ensure widespread coverage and distribution of editorial content. This dynamic network ensures a broad reach and effective communication of project outcomes.
