Nominations open for Count Lajos Batthyány, Countess Antonia Zichy awards
Nominations for the Hungarian Batthyány Foundation's Count Lajos Batthyány and Countess Antónia Zichy awards are open until July 31, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The awards were founded in 2019, to recognize individuals who respond to social, economic, and political challenges in a practical and pragmatic manner, in proportion to the opportunities and necessities. The patron of this year's awards is once again reformed bishop Zoltán Balog, pastoral president of the Synod.
The final winners will be chosen by an independent, professional jury of eight judges set up by the foundation.
Margit Batthyány-Schmidt, president of the Hungarian Batthyány Foundation, noted, "We are living in extraordinary times when exemplary deeds are all the more valued. When the 2019 awards were established, we could not have imagined how much the world would change around us in three years and how relevant the values embodied in our awards would become. It is a special honor that this year, bishop Zoltán Balog, the Most Reverend, has again accepted the patronage of the awards and the honorary chairmanship of the Jury."
The awards will be presented on the National Day of Mourning for the Execution of the Martyrs of Arad, October 6, at the Batthyány Mausoleum. The awards also include a cash prize.
The foundation is again offering the public an opportunity to nominate anyone this year. Nominations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org until July 31, indicating the names of the men and women whom the nominator considers deserving of the awards.
More information and a short film about the call for nominations are available here.
