Exhibition opening in Bratislava: Global Peace Photo Award

As part of Culture of Solidarity, the Global Peace Photo Awards exhibition will open in Bratislava at Rybne námestie Square.

Die Ausstellung wird bis 30. Juli 2024 zu sehen sein.

Inspired by the 1911 Nobel Peace Prize winners Alfred Fried and Tobias Asser, the Global Peace Photo Award recognises and encourages photographers from around the world whose images capture the human quest for a peaceful world and the search for the beautiful and good in our lives. The prize goes to those photographers who best express the idea that our future lies in peaceful coexistence.

Inner peace, peaceful coexistence, peace within a community, peace between nations, international peace policy – what do we associate with these? As many important photography awards focus on the conflicts and crises, the wars and disasters on our planet, they do not usually shed light on what else people are capable of. The Global Peace Photo Award, which was launched in 2013 as the Alfred Fried Photography Award, fills this gap: It shows the different facets of peacefulness and completes the picture of human beings with their good sides. It honours the pictures that tell of successes instead of failures, of empathy instead of hatred, of what is worth preserving instead of destruction, of encouragement instead of torment and of the human right to beauty.
