If you’re a keen amateur photographer or a seasoned photo pro, you’ve probably seen no end of photography competitions asking for your photos and sometimes, your cash too. The CEWE Photo Award is different. 

CEWE is Europe’s number one photo printing company, and its 2023 photo competition has a mission to spark joy and show the world at its most beautiful – as well as to reward the best photographers with some spectacular prizes and global recognition for their work. 

You could win a share of over €250,000 of prizes including holidays, state-of-the-art camera kit and much more, and not just for a handful of winners, but for the best 1,000 entrants. 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 positively impacting the lives of children all over the world.
