The manger exhibition was organized by the Foundation for Hungarian Handicrafts in 1994 for the first time on the model of the 100 international manger exhibitions in Rome. The entries were judged by a jury of folk craftsmen and ethnographers, as well as representatives of the Christian Museum in Esztergom and the Cistercian Parish.

This year, more than 200 works from 126 applicants were included in the competition. The material of the exhibition will be combined in a trilingual album. The exhibition is open until 7 January.
