Many important photography awards focus on the conflicts and crises, the wars and catastrophes on our planet. The Global Peace Photo Award, launched in 2013 as the Alfred Fried Photography Award, fills this gap: it shows the various facets of peacefulness. It honours the pictures which tell about successes rather than failures; of empathy rather than hatred; of things worth preserving rather than destruction; of encouragement rather than agony; and of the human right to beauty.
The Call is open to all photographers from anywhere in the world. Your story must not be older than three years at the time when the call for entry opens.
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.
