Photography themes of the competition

Peace and photography enjoy a special relationship. The work of photojournalists has always helped make people aware of the need for and rewards of a life of peace. Regrettably they usually achieved this with pictures of the opposite – war and hunger. The organizers of the Alfred Fried Photography Award 2016 call on the photographic community to focus on peace in the world and to communicate this strongly in the media and to the public at large.
