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 organisers of the Alfred Fried Photography Award 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.
Digital submissions must be saved as .jpg, with a size between 2000 pixels and 3000 pixels on the longest side. The maximum file size is 2 MB. Images must not include any embedded marks, logos, names or borders.
You may enter several photographs as individual submissions without an overall theme. Or you can submit multiple photographs as one story (up to 20 photographs that share a theme or concept).
The photographer retains the copyright of his/her image.
There is no entry fee.
Open to professional and amateur photographers from anywhere in the world.
The winner of the Alfred Fried Photography Award will receive the sum of 10,000 EUR (approx. 11,000 USD). In addition, the top five listed photographers will be awarded the Alfred Fried Peace Medal.
The award ceremony will be held at the Austrian Parliament in Vienna on 20 September 2016, just days ahead of the UN International Peace Day (21 September).
The winning picture will be on display for one year at the Austrian Parliament and will be included in its permanent art collection.
