The Alfred Fried Photography Award moves to Paris
"Cultivating a culture of peace – The Alfred Fried Photography Award, an exhibition to celebrate the 70th anniversary of UNESCO" group exhibition opens on 31th October 2014 at the UNESCO's Avenue Suffren entrance
Being shortlisted with my Lost in Music project photographs for Alfred Fried Photography Award, was a big recognition for my work, especially since there are so many amazing projects and photographs shortlisted this year, and music photography is often look down upon in the photojournalistic world. Honestly, I really feel very honoured to be in such extinguished club. But, the story goes on!

The people behind the aforementioned Award are really active and they managed to organise an outdoor group exhibition with 47 150 cm x 120 cm size panels containing chosen photographs from 21 shortlisted projects / photographers, including, of course, the winning images (1549 photographers submitted their projects this year, just to explain how proud I feel) in Paris, France, at the UNESCO's Avenue Suffren entrance (UNESCO is one of the partners of the Alfred Fried Photography Award).
The exhibition will open on Friday 31th October 2014, and although it’s not 100% confirmed yet, but the Madame Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, will most likely open the exhibition. The images will be shown until 31th December 2014.
Organisers of the Award also informed me that there is a great chance, if everything goes well, the exhibition will move to other UN cities (Geneva, Vienna, New York City), but I will inform you on that when that happens.
So, if you’re Paris and in the neighbourhood of Avenue Suffren, be sure to check the exhibition, you’ll see some amazing photojournalistic works by my extinguished colleagues!
