To showcase our passion for sport across the globe, CEWE has released a collection of new images that celebrate all professional and amateur athletes as part of this year’s CEWE Photo Award, the world’s largest photo competition.

The images range from snowboarders and cyclists to football players and surfers.  

The 13 images have been submitted as entries to the sports category in this year’s competition, which aims to celebrate the best photography from across the globe.

The competition, now in its fourth edition, launched for entries in May 2020 and closed in May 2021, and was open to everyone – from keen amateur photographers to established professionals.

Entrants were asked to submit photos that celebrate the competition’s ‘Our World is Beautiful’ theme.

There were 10 categories for budding photographers to enter – from aerial shots and animals to landscapes, travel & culture.
