Gerd Ludwig will be serving on the Jury for the Alfred Fried Photography Award for the second year in a row. The Fried Award is given annually by The Photographische Gesellschaft (PHG) in Austria and Edition Lammerhuber in partnership with UNESCO, the Austrian Parliament, the Austrian Parliamentary Reporting Association and the International Press Institute (IPI). The award recognizes the world’s best photograph on the theme of peace.
Submission for the award is free of charge and the winner will receive a prize of 5,000 euros. The winning photograph will be displayed at the Austrian Parliament building for a year and will then be added to the permanent collection of the Parliament. The submission deadline is May 17, and the award will be presented on September 17, just before the UN International Peace Day.
