MOME senior lecturer Edit Szűcs receives the Ferenczy Award

Date: 2023.04.06
In recognition of her outstanding applied artistic and industrial design work, clothing and costume designer and MOME senior lecturer Edit Szűcs received the Noémi Ferenczy Award. The award was presented on 15 March 2023 on the occasion of the national holiday by Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and Deputy Minister, Ministry of Culture and Innovation Eszter Vitályos and State Secretary of the Ministry of Culture and Innovation Magdolna Závogyán.

Known as the costume designer of Academy Award winning film Son of Saul, Edit Szűcs has received several accolades over the past few years – most recently Best Costume at the Robert Award of the Danish Film Academy in 2021 for the 2020 film The Good Traitor.  

As senior lecturer of the MOME Design Institute, she has been teaching fashion and costume design and research for several years, and believes that “Creating designs is always an expedition with all the excitement, wonder and experience that comes with it. If routine took over, I would look for a different field.”  

With a penchant for experimentation, she is a regular fixture of the independent theatre, classic stone theatre, film, and exhibition scenes. With over two hundred projects under her belt as a costume designer, in addition to portraying characters, working with textile has been a pivotal experience for her, facilitating a widely variability of the outcome.

In connection with the award received in 2021 she was featured in the Fashion and Design television programme (available here) .

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.

Ten teams have embarked on an exciting journey with mentors from MOME, with several projects focusing on space-based plant cultivation and creating new habitats as alternatives to a lost Earth. The 2024 edition of the “Jump into the Future!" competition for 7th to 10th graders revolves around the theme of space. The second round is already underway, and the expanded jury had a challenging task putting together a shortlist from 52 entries by highly committed students from across the country.
