Take part in the competition

We are a passionate group of young people devoted to sharing the joy of thinking through organizing various events targeting students with mathematical talent. One of these events is our annual Dürer competition where teams of 3 take part. We are happy to announce that this year the most challenging category is being opened internationally.

Dürer is a traditional proof-based competition, the teams have 3 hours to solve 5 problems.
In Hungary the competition is held in 4 categories, of which the most challenging one is designed for competitors who actively take part in olympiad training. In this category, most teams include a student who has taken part in an international olympiad (IMO, MEMO, EGMO, RMM), or is about to qualify for one in the same academic year.

This is a unique competition with many original problems and is an excellent opportunity for students to practice and further their experience while working as a team. This is the spirit in which we have been organising the contest for 12 years. The competition attracts more and more students and schools each year. In the 2018-19 academic year, approximately 800 students competed in the four high school maths categories.

We would like to invite teams of 3 high school students (they might attend different high schools). The deadline for applications is 7th November 23:59 CET, apply via e-mail to durerinfo@gmail.com. The competition is held on 8th November 15:00 CET. The problems will appear on our website (https://durerinfo.hu) in English and the teams will have time to submit the solutions until 18:30 CET (in English, scanned in legible quality or typed). After marking the solutions the teams will receive an online certificate.

We invite schools, institutions to apply as an “official” location, in this case feel free to contact us.

The problems from last year’s competition are available in English on our website at https://durerinfo.hu/problems/. The participation is free of charge.
