Celebrating World Photography Day with CEWE Photo Award Entries

18th August 2021

We’re so proud that your photos are at the heart of all we do at CEWE and truly make up the fabric of who we are – both in the service we provide to our customers and the connection we have with them.

For World Photography Day, we thought it only right to showcase some of the images we’ve had the pleasure of seeing in the CEWE Photo Award 2021 - once again the official largest photo competition in the world. Thanks to entrants from 179 countries across the globe, we closed the contest on 31st May with over 600,000 entries, making up some of the very greatest photography in the world.

This World Photography Day, take a moment with us and reflect on these photos that capture our beautiful world in all its glory.
