The Alfred Fried Photography Award is more than just a photo contest; it’s the world’s only competition that asks entrants to visually answer the question of what peace looks like. Almost a year after the 2014 Fried Award was bestowed in the Republic of Austria’s parliament on International Day of Peace in September 2014, juror Lois Lammerhuber (AT) has curated a 12-screen exhibition of the prizewinning works for the Ars Electronica Festival.
Prizewinners, Shortlist and Special Selection
The grand prize was awarded to Russian photographer Emile Gataullin for Towards the Horizon, images capturing moments of peaceful humanity in rural Russia. Five honorable mentions went to Pierre Adenis for Tempelhofer Freiheit, Heidi & Hans-Jürgen Koch for Bison, Max Kratzer for Status, Davide Tremolada for Heal and Ann-Christine Woehrl for IN/VISIBLE. The exhibition also includes a selection of 320 works chosen by the jurors and all short-listed works. Prints of selected images will also be on display in PostCity.
