Using different Monte Carlo codes such as Geant 4.10, Pythia 8.18, SIBYLL and QGSJET, as well as compiling published data on pp interactions close to the kinematic threshold, we parametrize the energy spectra and production rates of gamma-rays by simple but quite accurate (≤ 20%) analytical expressions in a broad range from the kinematic threshold to PeV energies.
