To highlight the unique and picturesque beauty across the UK, CEWE has released a collection of new images from the CEWE Photo Award – the world’s largest photo competition, to inspire you to explore more of the UK this summer.

The 15 snaps have been submitted in this year’s competition, which launched in May and aims to celebrate the best in photography across the globe. The competition is open to everyone – from keen amateur photographers to established professionals.

Until the end of May 2023, entrants can submit photos for free that celebrate the competition’s ‘Our World is Beautiful’ theme. There are 10 categories for budding photographers to enter – from aerial shots and animals to landscapes, travel and culture, highlighting the true beauty of the world around us.

The 1000 overall winners can look forward to prizes totalling more than €250,000. In addition, three monthly winners will be chosen, each receiving a voucher for CEWE photo products worth €100. Charity partner, SOS Children’s Villages Worldwide, has been selected, with 10 Euro cents being donated to the children’s relief organisation for every photo submitted.

Says a photo expert at CEWE UK:

“There are so many wonderful parts of the UK to explore, from beaches to countryside – it really is full of natural beauty. These photos from the CEWE Photo Award aim to celebrate that and highlight just how wonderful the world is that we live in.  

“We’re so pleased to have recently launched our 2023 competition and are really enjoying seeing so many amazing entries so far. The beautiful images people capture never fail to amaze us.”
