The CEWE Photo Award, the largest free competition of its kind in the world, is now open for entries from amateurs and professionals alike, showcasing the Earth’s beauty and offering incredible rewards.

Anyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to take part, as the CEWE Photo Award has over €250,000 of prizes to be won. However, it’s not just the winners that benefit; for every photograph entered, CEWE will donate 10 Euro cents to SOS Children’s Villages Worldwide. So just by participating, you’re not just connecting with a community of photographers around the globe – you’re positively impacting the lives of children all over the world. 

That is at the heart of the CEWE Photo Award, whose message is “Our world is beautiful”. This can be explored through the ten categories for entry: Sport, People, Landscapes, Animals, Architecture and technology, Nature, Travel and Culture, Food and Cooking, Hobby and leisure, and Aerial photos.
