In 2009 we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the death of Joseph Haydn, one of the great Viennese Classicists, who spent a significant portion of his life in Hungary at Eszterháza (today Fertőd) in the Esterházy Palace. As part of the Haydn commemorative year, participants in drawing and visual culture subjects of the National Middle-school Study Competition (OKTV) which is financed and determined by the Ministry of Education and Culture, were offered the opportunity to furnish a musical pavili...on – envisioned in the garden of the Fertőd Castle – with fine art and photographic creations as well as designed applied art objects, as a remembrance of Haydn. These creations can evoke the spirit of the master, his music and life, the places where he lived and his era, and the students have used the techniques of our own time – web design, image design – to bring the “Haydn Music Pavilion” into public consciousness. The OKTV is a competition in several rounds, which is arranged between students from the final two years at secondary schools in Hungary. The very first OKTV was organised in 1923 in mathematics, and in 1927 physics and natural science competitions were launched. Many famous Hungarian scientists and artists entered these competitions, which these days exist for all the subjects taught in the secondary schools. The high quality of competition – which is professionally organised by the Foundation for Establishing Visual and Environmental Culture – results in the creation of freshly inventive and clever works by students of creative subjects.
