MOME teacher dr. Petra Aczél received a Bonis Bona lifetime achievement award

Date: 2023.05.29
Over fifty educators from Hungary and the other side of the border received a Bonis Bona – For Talents of the Nation award, including university professor and MOME teacher dr. Petra Aczél, who was granted a lifetime achievement award. The award was founded ten years ago to recognise outstanding talent support work, based on nominations by the community.

Dr. Petra Aczél joined MOME after a stretch of 25 years in higher education, contributing her strategic communication, rhetoric, and media expertise to increase the university’s exposure and help student advancement. She is perhaps the most recognised authority in media and communication studies, specialising in the research and teaching of future skills – the skills and competences students need to succeed. 

She had been teaching at the Corvinus University of Budapest for twelve years, where she was named teacher of the year, before coming to work at MOME. She holds numerous international professional awards including the European Award for Excellence in Teaching in the Social Sciences and Humanities and the Kenneth Rice Reward for Excellence in Teaching. In 2019, she was awarded the Knights’ Cross of the Order of Merit of Hungary.

Bonis Bona, the most prestigious award to be granted for talent management, is offered in four individual categories: Outstanding Talent Management, Outstanding Talent Development, Outstanding Talent Support, and Lifetime Achievement. Altogether 50 professionals received one of the first three, and a total of 7 won the latter.

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.
