Whether you’re a pro photographer or a keen amateur, show off your masterpieces and enter the world’s largest photo competition of its kind. Realise your full potential by submitting any photos you’re proud of taking into the CEWE Photo Award to be in with the chance of winning over £200,000 in prizes. From portraits and animals to sports and travel, the CEWE Photo Award has it covered.

Regardless of your skill level, we’re open to passionate, enthusiastic photographers across the globe to celebrate the Earth’s beauty. Whether you shoot photos as a hobby for yourself or to share with other people, there is no better stage to showcase your favourite shots than a global photography competition.

Your images will be seen by a select panel of judges with years of knowledge and expertise between them – including celebrity photographer Christie Goodwin, who has worked with artists including Ed Sheeran, Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift. 

We know it’s hard to choose your very best work, so this competition is free to enter, and you can submit up to 100 images. After all, this is your opportunity to connect and share a global experience with other photographers just like you.

If the prizes and expert judges aren’t enough, for every entry we receive from you, €0.10 will also be donated to the SOS Children’s Villages charity. So just by taking part, you’ll help improve the lives of children around the world.

The closing date is 31 May 2021. Find out more at cewephotoaward.com.
