    List of events and collaborations:

    Our section worked on its regular, annual events and activities. No other event was realized in 2018 unfortunately.

    October. 2018 – Mini Festival
    ISCM Hungarian Section is partner of Mini Festival in Budapest, Hungary. The 3-4 day long festival performs pieces by Hungarian composers mostly. This year two pieces by the Israeli composer, Yinam Leef were performed by Hungarian performers.

    Regular activities:
    Benedek Istvánffy Prize named after the 18th century Hungarian composer.
    The Hungarian Composers’ Union founded the Benedek Istvánffy Prize named after the 18th century Hungarian composer. The yearly award goes to a composer below 40 for a major composition performed the previous year. The Board of the Union decided to set up a Board of Trustees from three members of the Union who listen and read all the applications and suggest one (or two) composer(s) for the prize. The final decision is done by the Board of the Union every January. This year’s prize went to Judit Varga for his piece entitled Pocket Requiem.
    Miklós Orszáczky Prize – same as Instvánffy but for popular music – stronger connection to pop and jazz composers (but major pieces).
    The prize was given to a Szabolcs Mácskovics for his A Mysterious Journey.
    Zoltán Kodály Scholarship – partner
    Our Society delegates one member in the jury of the Zoltán Kodály Scholarship which is given to young composers and musicologists yearly.
    Publishing scores thanks to the work of Board for Support of Music Publishing of the Hungarian Composers' Union – ca. 15 scores each year
    The Hungarian Composers’ Union is the manager of the equity which has a certain amount of interest every year. This interest must be used to publish contemporary Hungarian music. The Board for Support of Music Publishing of the Hungarian Composers' Union could give money to several publications in 2018.
