Global Peace Photo Award 2020
The Alfred Fried Photography Award has been present internationally since 2013 and has attracted submissions from more than 120 countries every year. In honouring the award’s worldwide recognition and your photographic efforts to document the peaceful side of life, we decided to change its name to Global Peace Photo Award.
The new name indicates why we have chosen Alfred Fried’s name and puts his memory into a much wider context understandable for everyone. We are sure the new name will honour Alfred Fried’s life and his struggle for peace. And finally, the new name will highlight the fact that Tobias Asser was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1911 with Alfred Fried for his efforts to establish the Hague Conference.
The Global Peace Photo Award recognizes and promotes photographers from all over the world whose pictures capture human efforts towards a peaceful world and the quest for beauty and goodness in our lives. The award goes to those photographs that best express the idea that our future lies in peaceful coexistence.
The top five listed photographers will be awarded the Alfred Fried Peace Medal. The Peace Image of the Year will receive €10,000. The winning picture will be on display for one year at the Austrian Parliament and will be included in the permanent art collection of the Austrian Parliament.
All winners will be invited to Vienna to the award ceremony at the Austrian Parliament on 17 September 2020.
The Global Peace Photo Award is open to all photographers from anywhere in the world.
