MOME once again launches its ‘JUMP INTO THE FUTURE!’ creative youth competition

Date: 2022.02.15
Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design is announcing a creative competition for 7th to 10th graders for the second time. The competition, which enjoyed a huge success last year, is designed to show that all it takes is a bright idea for anyone to become a designer or future researcher. Teams with 2 to 5 members should apply through the website of the competition between 15 February and 15 March.

Be the one to plan the future!

How do you imagine the world to be 20 years from now? Artificial intelligence, environmental changes, new life forms...What will life be like in 2042? Is the world changing for the better or the worse?

Do you know it’s also up to you how the future will turn out? What would you change about the world? An idea conceived now can bring about real change and impact the lives of millions.Share your idea of the future with us. Fire up your rockets and create a design that can become a reality by 2042! We believe that all change starts with a bright idea.

The ‘Jump into the future!’ creative competition, announced by Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) for the second time, is open for application to teams of 7th to 10th graders from Hungary and the other side of the border to share their ideas for the future.

"The ‘Jump into the future!’ competition is directed at a generation who is perfectly at ease switching between the digital and the analogue. How can they respond to the challenges of the 21st century? This competition encourages them to think responsibly and engage in a creative activity aimed at building the future”, said Rector of MOME József Fülöp.

Through the entries received for last year’s competition, the university was able to get a comprehensive overview of the visions of Generation Z, while the participants were given an opportunity to unlock their creativity, and develop their critical thinking. The popularity of the competition is evidenced by the participation of 440 students from 226 schools, with the most outstanding projects presented at the 2021 autumn Budapest Design Week. A short summary film about last year’s competition is available at JUMP INTO THE FUTURE! competition

Whether it is graphics, short film, animation, photo, service, product, or architectural concept, MOME welcomes all creative ideas about the future.
