    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.

    Eligibility


    Open to professional and amateur photographers from anywhere in the world.

    Prize


    The winner of the Alfred Fried Photography Award will receive the sum of 10,000 EUR (approx. 10,670 USD). In addition, the top five listed photographers will be awarded the Alfred Fried Peace Medal.

    The winner of the Childen Peace Image of the Year will receive the sum of 1,000 EUR.

    All winners will be invited to Vienna to the Award Ceremony at the Austrian Parliament on 14 September 2017, and will take part in worldwide exhibitions.
