The Robert Capa Photography Grand Prize Hungary was established by the Capa Center in 2014 to recognize the work of artists who have made outstanding achievements in any field of Hungarian photography. Last October, the jury of the Capa Grand Prize Hungary 2020 selected three fellows from among the entries received, three of whom continued to work on their work for a year, made difficult by the Covid-19 epidemic.

Róbert László Bácsi’s series Nagorno-Karabakh – Missing Generations uses the classical toolkit of documentary photography to depict the human destinies of this Caucasus region, which has been in a precarious political situation and has been the scene of military conflicts for decades. Éva Szombat’s body of work titled I Want Orgasms, Not Roses focuses on women’s sexuality, in a taboo-busting yet playful way, and seeks to respond to the social situation of women in a broader sense. Balázs Turós, in his personal work The Nature of Things, focuses on his grandmother with dementia and tries to get closer to the eternal question of passing away, while also examining his own relationship to the material.

The jury in 2021 awarded the Capa Grand Prize Hungary of three million forints for the sixth time on the opening day of the exhibition, based on these works and the public presentation of the fellows.
