Presenting the winners of the Global Peace Photo Award 2020 (update)

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it was not possible to host an international award ceremony 2020. So the winners of the Global Peace Photo Award 2020 and the Children’s Peace Image of the Year 2020 have not been announced yet.

But a solution finally has been found. The Global Peace Photo Award partnered with the Festival La Gacilly-Baden Photo, which will be held in Baden, near Vienna, Austria, from 18 June to 17 October 2021. 

The winners of the Global Peace Photo Award 2020 will be presented along other outstanding peace images in an exhibition in the heart of Baden. The Winners of the 2020 contest will be honored in an outdoor ceremony on 19 July 2021. The laureates have already been invited to come to Baden.

More about the exhibition here.

We will keep you updated!

Global Peace Photo Award recognizes and promotes photographers from all over the world whose pictures capture human efforts towards a peaceful world and the quest for beauty and goodness in our lives. The award goes to those photographs that best express the idea that our future lies in peaceful coexistence.


The top five listed photographers will be awarded the Alfred Fried Peace Medal. The Peace Image of the Year will receive €10,000.
