Images by female photographers have been released to publicise the CEWE Photo Award, claimed to be the world’s largest photo competition, as it launches its latest edition.

The 28 photos were submitted to last year’s CEWE Photo Award, a competition which aims to celebrate the best in photography across the globe.

This year’s competition, now in its fourth edition, launched for entries on the 18th May and is open to everyone – from keen amateur photographers to established professionals. Entrants are asked to submit photos which celebrate the competition’s ‘Our world is beautiful’ theme.

Fresh perspectives

Entrants will have one year to submit their photos and, in this current climate, CEWE is encouraging budding photographers to find the beauty in the small things, as well as finding fresh perspectives in ordinary life in a time when many of us can’t stray too far from home. However, the competition is also open to images taken at any time, meaning you can submit photos that you have taken in the past.

There are ten categories from landscapes to food to choose from, and 1,000 prizes with a total value of €250,000 ranging from holidays and photographic equipment to CEWE product vouchers. For each entry CEWE will donate 10 Euro cents to a chosen charity, SOS Children’s Villages Worldwide.

Clare Moreton, photo expert at the Award’s sponsors, photo printing specialists CEWE UK, said: “Now more than ever before, photos are connecting people from around the globe, so it’s a great time to be launching the fourth edition of the CEWE Photo Award. With 448,152 photos submitted last year, the CEWE Photo Award is now the world’s largest photo competition and we are looking forward to sharing lots more beautiful images from photography enthusiasts from across the world this year.”
