The prizes shall be awarded in two categories - regular and student. Papers can analyse the role and functioning of the public sector at macroeconomic, sectoral and microeconomic levels, in both advanced and emerging market economies. The qualities expected to be found in submissions are analytical rigour and creativity, as well as originality and technical proficiency.

The 2023 competition will be announced in January 2023.

The committee for the annual award of the Prof. Dr. Marijan Hanžeković Trust consisting of Vjekoslav Bratić (Institute of Public Finance, Zagreb), Milan Deskar Škrbić (Croatian National Bank, Zagreb), Tomislav Globan (Faculty of Economics, Zagreb), Katarina Ott (Institute of Public Finance, Zagreb) and Marina Tkalec (The Institute of Economics, Zagreb) has decided on the results of the 2022 competition.


In the regular category, the 50,000 HRK award, the diploma and the medal go to Tihana Škrinjarić (Croatian National Bank, Zagreb) for the paper "Introducing a composite indicator of cyclical systemic risk in Croatia: possibilities and limitations".


Because of the poor quality of the submitted students’ articles, there will be no award in the student category this year. 


The awarded article will be published in the journal Public Sector Economics.
