Entries are now open for the Global Peace Photo Award 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 the lives. The Global Peace Photo Award aims to discover the best picture of the better side of humans and the positive aspects of changes in this world.

The Global Peace Photo Award for the best photo of peace is not an award for escapism, wildflower meadows and sunsets or an award for the sweetest smile, nor does it criticize the informative reportage photography which by nature depicts the misery of the world.

The Global Peace Photo Award is awarded by Edition Lammerhuber in partnership with Photographische Gesellschaft, (PHG), UNESCO, Austrian Parliament, Austrian Parliamentary Reporting Association, International Press Institute (IPI), World Press Photo Foundation, POY LATAM and LensCulture.

The top five listed photographers will be awarded the Alfred Fried Peace Medal. The Peace Image of the Year will receive €10,000.
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.
