    List of events and collaborations:

    Our collaboration with the ISCM Slovak Section was continued:
    The VENI Academy announced a call for scores for Visegrád countries of ISCM sections. They practiced one piece from each country with students. From ISCM Hungarian section the VENI jury selected and premiered Balázs Horváth’s Poeme Canonique – Trgll on March 16, 2016.
    October. 2016 – 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. One concert was dedicated partly to our Polish collegues. Pieces by Wojciech Widłak, Dariusz Przybylski, Tomasz Sikorski és Ignací Zalewski were performed by Hungarian performers at this event.
    A similar joint concert will be prepared with Macedonian and Slovenian composers this year.

    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 Árpád Solti for his piece entitled La Loreley.
    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 Petra Várallyai for her Deadline Haze.
    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 ca. 15 publications the previous years.
