The 2015 Alfred Fried Photography Award was a great success and was well received by the global photography community. The award ceremony, held at the Austrian Parliament, drew a large international audience. Doris Bures, Speaker of the National Council, introduced the ceremony attended by 240 guests, including Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, who had flown in from New Delhi for the occasion.

The Photographic Society, Edition Lammerhuber, UNESCO, the Austrian Parliament, the Association of Parliament Journalists, and the International Press Institute (IPI), which jointly offer the prize, honoured five works with the Alfred Fried Photography Award Medal: Patricia Willocq for her work Look at me, I am beautiful, Arthur van Beveren, for Regelbau; Dmitrij Leltschuk, for Downshifting in Belarus; David Martín Huamaní Bedoya for Tururo Roots and Carla Kogelman for Ich bin Waldviertel.

Belgian-based photographer Patricia Willocq received the main prize for a picture in her series Look at me, I am beautiful from Doris Bures, President of the National Council, Silvia Lammerhuber, Managing Director of Edition Lammerhuber, and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kailash Satyarthi.
