With travel finally back on the agenda for many of us across the UK, it’s time to start thinking about your next adventure and 2022 travel plans.
To help offer some inspiration, CEWE has released a collection of new images taken by photographers on their travels as part of this year’s CEWE Photo Award. These 15 snaps were submitted as part of the travel and culture category of this year’s competition, which aims to celebrate the best in photography 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 which 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 and culture.
Says Clare Moreton, photo expert at CEWE UK:
“The travel and culture category always provides some of the most beautiful and standout images as they offer a really unique perspective of the wonders people see all across the world. If you’re looking ahead to your next travelling adventure, these photos are sure to provide you with an array of inspiration.
“We’ve really enjoyed seeing people’s entries to the CEWE Photo Award 2021 and are looking forward to sharing more stunning images from the categories soon.”
