What does peace look like? 1,549 photographers in 99 countries located on five continents explored answers to this question in 2014 within the context of the Alfred Fried Photography Award. An extensive selection including the Worlds Best Picture on the Theme of Peace, the photos chosen for the shortlist and many other words will be shown at Vienna Airport as a multimedia presentation starting on April 1, 2015. The different photographs can be viewed for a period of two weeks near Gate F01 in Terminal 3.
The Alfred Fried Photography Award is granted by the Photographische Gesellschaft (Photographic Society), Edition Lammerhuber, UNESCO, the Austrian Parliament, the Parliamentary Journalists Association and the International Press Institute (IPI). 5,271 works from 1,549 photographers were submitted. The main prize endowed to the amount of EUR 5,000 for the Worlds Best Picture on the Theme of Peace was given to the Russian photographer Emil Gataullin, who lives in Moscow. In his series called Towards the Horizon, he wandered through the Russian hinterland with his analogue camera and captured people and moments in impressive black-white pictures. Other awards were given to the works of Pierre Adenis (Tempelhofer Freedom), Heidi & Hans-Jürgen Koch (Bison), Max Kratzer (Status), Davide Tremolada (Heal) and Ann-Christine Woehrl (IN/VISIBLE).
