A great opportunity for any photographer to gain worldwide attention

Works of the Global Peace Photo Award have been exhibited at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, at the Willy-Brandt-Haus in Berlin, at the Geneva Peace Week, at the Forum Austriaco di Cultura in Rome and the eXposure Festival in Sharjah. Moreover, the shortlisted images, plus 320 other remarkable works, have been put together in a 50-minute animation, shown 7 times a day on the DIGI-WALL at Vienna’s main railway station, which can be seen by 18 000 travellers a day.

The winning pictures and a best-of the-shortlist have been shown at the Festival La Gacilly-Baden Photo 2021, the largest outdoor photo festival in Europe, with over 300 000 visitors. Under the title A Culture of Solidarity another selection of images were shown in Tulln, Austria and Celje, Slovenia last summer.

The participants of the Global Peace Photo Award 2023 can look forward to a series of exhibitions.
