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 Alfred Fried Photography award has been present internationally since 2013 and has attracted submissions from more than 120 countries every year. In honoring the award’s worldwide recognition and your photographic efforts to document the peaceful side of life, they decided to change its name to Global Peace Photo Award.
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.
