The Alfred Fried Photography Award recognizes and promotes photographers from all over the world whose pictures capture human efforts towards a peaceful world 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.All winners will be invited to Vienna to the award ceremony at the Austrian Parliament on 12 September 2019.

About The Award:

As many important photography awards focus on the conflicts and crises, the wars and catastrophes on our planet, professional awards do not normally highlight what other things humans are capable of. The Alfred Fried Photography Award, launched in 2013, fills this gap: it shows the various facets of peacefulness. It completes the image of humans by adding their good sides. It honors the pictures which tell about successes rather than failures; of empathy rather than hatred; of things worth preserving rather than destruction; of encouragement rather than agony; and of the human right to beauty.
