Rules for donating a commemorative medal named after Count Zsigmond Széchenyi.

Founder of the commemorative medal.

The founder of the commemorative medal is Országos Charity Hunting Non-profit Ltd. (registered office: 8000 Székesfehérvár, Király sor 30. – hereafter known as [The Founder], established in 2019 with the aim of extending the charity hunting event to a national level and to provide an organizational framework for charity hunting events nationwide.

The foundation and purpose of the commemorative medal

The declared goal of the Founder is to hold charity hunting events in all counties of Hungary on December 27 each year, according to a uniform image, with the same participation fees and individual grants to support the children's wards of each designated county hospital. In this spirit, charity hunting and the activities of the Founder will emphasize and promote the importance of selflessness, social responsibility and charitable communities. The Founder therefore looks to reward and honour a sport or professional hunter who has made a committed and outstanding effort in any given year or county for the promotion and success of this new renaissance of hunting culture & charity hunting benevolence – and serving to promote a new, more positive view of the hunting community.

Struggle, humility, love and fidelity to the homeland characterized the twentieth century. One of the greatest Hungarian hunters of the 19th century was Count Zsigmond Széchenyi. His career and values can serve as an exemplar for all Hungarian hunters. Naming the commemorative medal after him demonstrates the Founder’s commitment to honour his memory wants and inspire a new breed of Hungarian hunters to embrace his example in promoting our hunting culture for future generations.

Only 1 commemorative medal will be awarded per county per year - a total of 19 – to our most inspiring hunters!

Awarding of the commemorative medal.

Every year, the Founder will reward a sports or professional hunter in the given county by presenting a commemorative medal. This will be decided by the Professional Board according to point 4 of these regulations until January 30 of each year. During the nomination, the members of the Professional Board may make a reasoned proposal, which will be reviewed by the Professional Board and then its decision will be taken by secret ballot. In making its decision, the Professional Board shall take into account the following aspects:

  • the promotion of charitable hunting as part of a wider hunting culture.
  • the setting of an example for the hunting community and future generations through charity hunting.
  • the extent of the donation at charitable hunting events should not be a decisive factor in awarding of the commemorative medal.
