András D. HAJDÚ

I was born in Budapest August 3, 1981. I earned my MA degree in 2012 in English literature, writing my diploma thesis on American war photography. I graduated in the photography school of Népszabadság Oktatási Központ with excellence in 2004. Since 2005 I have worked for [origo], the biggest internet news portal in Hungary as a photographer and headed its photography section between 2006 and 2008. In 2008 I taught digital photography at Social Studies Faculty of ELTE University, Budapest. In 2009 I served on the jury of Chachipe International Photography Competition. Over the past seven years I have won twelve awards at the Hungarian Press Photography Contest and my pictures have been published in several Hungarian and foreign newspapers. In 2009 and 2010 I won the József Pécsi photography scholarship.
