Hungary: First National Grave-Digging Contest

Dozens of gravediggers gathered in Hungary for the nation’s first-ever national grave-digging competition to promote the occupation.

Participants competed in 18 two-person teams to dig graves 65cm wide, 2.3 metres long and 1.7metres deep, using tools such as shovels, rakes, axes and pickaxes.

Each set of contestants were judged not only on how quickly they were able to dig their graves, but also on the style of the mounds surrounding the completed graves.

The event was organized to draw young people to the profession of grave-digging as organizer Iren Kari said it was difficult to replace retiring employees.

The fastest team completed the task in just over half an hour. The winning teams earned the chance to participate in a regional contest in Slovakia in November.
