The Alfred Fried Photography Award 2017

Publish Date: Apr 21, 2017

Deadline: Jun 04, 2017

Enter your work to the Alfred Fried Photography Award 2017 and the The Children Peace Image of the Year!

The Alfred Fried Photography Award will be organized in partnership with UNESCO, the Austrian Parliament, the Austrian Parliamentary Reporting Association, the International Press Institute (IPI) and the German Youth Photography Award.

Alfred Hermann Fried (* 11 November 1864, Vienna; † 4 May 1921, Vienna) was an Austrian pacifist and author. As founder of the journal Die Waffen nieder! (Lay down your arms!) and other peace activities, Fried received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1911, together with Tobias Asser, organizer of the first International The Hague Peace Conference and instigator of the Permanent Court of Arbitration.

With the Alfred Fried Photography Award the PHG and Edition Lammerhuber want to promote photographers from all over the world whose pictures capture human efforts towards a peaceful world. The Alfred Fried Photography Award is presented annually on 21 September, the UN International Peace Day.

Photography captures the sentiment of a moment, reflecting the actual world in a picture. The Alfred Fried Photography Award aims to present human efforts to live together in peace and the quest for beauty and goodness in our lives. The award goes to those photographs that best express the idea that our future lies in peaceful coexistence.


The winner of the Alfred Fried Photography Award will receive the sum of € 10,000. 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. The award ceremony will be held at the Austrian Parliament in Vienna on 14 September 2017, 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. All submitted images have the chance to take part in international exhibitions.
