What does peace look like?

Peace and photography enjoy a special relationship. The work of photojournalists has always helped make people aware of the need for and rewards of a life of peace. Regrettably they usually achieved this with pictures of the opposite – war and hunger. The organizers of the Alfred Fried Photography Award 2015 call on the photographic community to focus on peace in the world and to communicate this strongly in the media and to the public at large.
The winner of the Alfred Fried Photography Award will receive the sum of € 5,000. In addition, the top five listed photographers will be awarded the Alfred Fried Peace Medal of the PHG.
The award ceremony will be held at the Austrian Parliament in Vienna on 17 September 2015, just days ahead of the UN International Peace Day.
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.(click here)
