This list contains suggestions on topics, places, events and people whose picture we would like to get submitted in our first Picture Competition. Please feel free to submit pictures of anything that you feel has a Hungarian aspect, this list below are just for suggestions.


You can probably find statutes, memorial plaques or streets commemorating some Hungarian warrior, scientist or politician (look especially for Kossuth, Petőfi, the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, or people in this category). Your country or city might have a Hungarian community that organizes cultural events that we would really like to see documented on Commons.

Also, if you live in a capital or bigger city you might be able to photograph the buildings of the Hungarian embassies and consulates - especially if they are situated in nice buildings.
