In his speech, the president noted the many accolades received by Mate, including the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Wildlife Photographer of the Year titles. He has published multiple books and his work has also been documented in a three-part film series, Ader said.

After Budapest, the exhibition will be taken on tour to other Hungarian cities starting with Debrecen in early April.
