Every year, the Global Peace Photo Award – formerly known as the Alfred Fried Photography Award – draws a vast number of entries from more than 120 countries. The name change, which has been in effect since 2013, further emphasises the contest’s dedication to honour human efforts towards a peaceful world. Photographers of all nationalities are invited to explore the question, ‘What does Peace Look Like?’ – be it in the form of single images and/or a photo reportage. The deadline for entries is May 24, 2020.
The shortlist 2019 included works by photographers such as Chris Grodotzki, Diego Ibarra, Jasper Doest and Alain Laboile. The award was presented to Camilo Leon-Quijano for his project on female rugby players in Paris.
The Global Peace Photo Award is organized by Edition Lammerhuber in partnership with Photographische Gesellschaft (PHG), UNESCO, Austrian Parliament, Austrian Parliamentary Reporting Association, International Press Institute (IPI), German Youth Photography Award and the World Press Photo Foundation.
