Call for entries for the Global Peace Photo Award 2020. The Alfred Fried Photography Award will be held under the new name Global Peace Photo Award, inspired by 1911 Nobel Peace Laureates Alfred Fried and Tobias Asser.
The new name indicates why we have chosen Alfred Fried’s name and puts his memory into a much wider context understandable for everyone. We are sure the new name will honor Alfred Fried’s life and his struggle for peace. And finally, the new name will highlight the fact that Tobias Asser was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1911 with Alfred Fried for his efforts to establish the Hague Conference.
The aim of the photography competition is to recognize and promote 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.
