CEWE marks International Women’s Day with 10 photographs taken by women which were submitted in last year’s competition…

The competition aims to celebrate the best in photography across the globe. It is open to everyone – from keen amateur photographers to established professionals.

Entrants were asked to submit photos that celebrated 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. A photo has been shared by a female photographer from each category.

In spring this year, the CEWE Photo Award will be returning for a 5th year with photographers across the globe once again able to submit entries across 10 categories highlighting the true beauty of the world around us.

Says a photo expert at CEWE UK:

“We’re so pleased to be releasing a set of stunning images captured by talented female photographers across the globe to celebrate International Women’s Day. The photos showcase a range of perspectives and truly capture the theme of the competition – celebrating that the world we live in is absolutely beautiful.

“We’ve really enjoyed seeing people’s entries to the CEWE Photo Award and feel particularly passionate about sharing wonderful photography from women around the world, not just today, but always. We are looking forward to seeing more amazing entries when the competition opens for this year.”
