MOME rewards its outstanding students: the 5th Stefan Lengyel Scholarship of Excellence award ceremony

Date: 2023.07.17
Adaptive reuse, transhumanism, and the endangered status of bees are some of the subjects explored by the winning projects of the latest Stefan Lengyel Scholarship of Excellence. The winners of the Stefan Lengyel Scholarship of Excellence for the the spring semester of the 2022/23 academic year were announced on 29 June at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design.

The 16 award winning students can proceed to perfect their concept using the support provided by the scholarship for 5 months, and the winner projects will be displayed in a public exhibition in the autumn on MOME Campus.

The winning entries include outstanding projects from the fields of social issues, sustainability, cultural heritage, mobility, and digitalisation, such as a research project exploring the social impact of portable music players locally and globally, an educational and art photography project focusing on the vital role of bees and apiaries, an emergency organ transport vehicle concept, a complex festival visual identity, a mould-breaking jewellery, and a unique architectural project infusing an abandoned site and building complex with new life and functions and repurposing the spaces in the spirit of inclusivity to accommodate the needs of the local community.

In addition to offering a means to further develop student projects, it also provides an opportunity for advancing the industry competences and practical experience of the participants. In the first round, students are nominated by their fellow students, while in the second, the 16 winning entries are selected by a jury of university leaders, teachers and professionals.

The awards were presented by President of the Foundation Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy and Rector József Fülöp in an awards ceremony.

Geometriai modellnek indult, majd a világ egyik legismertebb térbeli logikai játéka lett belőle. Generációk nőttek fel a bűvös kocka oldalait forgatva, és a mai napig versenyeket rendeznek abból, ki tudja minél rövidebb idő alatt kirakni, azaz a kilenc azonos színű kisebb kockát egy-egy oldalra mozgatni anélkül, hogy szétszedné. A bűvös kocka, amelyet Rubik Ernő a MOME elődintézményében, az Iparművészeti Főiskolán alkotott meg, 2024-ben ünnepli 50. születésnapját, sőt alkotója is jubilál, idén 80 éves.

MOME students triumphed at the Red Dot Design Awards, often referred to as the "Oscars of the design world" with revolutionary concepts including a hybrid tram, a modular pram, an innovative VR headset for home workouts, and a stretcher designed for rough terrains. These award-winning projects were developed under the new preparatory programme of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, whose success is demonstrated by five out of twelve submissions receiving accolades.

It is a long-standing tradition of our University to entrust designing the visual identity of the MOME Diploma, from graphic design to the portrait photography of BA and MA students, to students through a competition. The annually refreshed concept thus reflects the university community from within, creating an important snapshot of the times and a unique keepsake for each graduating year.
