National Pet Month – 12 adorable pet photos

Photographed by Annika Kundt. Taken in Germany, Dormagen

To celebrate National Pet Month in April, CEWE has released a collection of new images taken by photographers across the globe from the CEWE Photo Award – the world’s largest photo competition.

The 12 snaps were submitted in last year’s competition, which aims to celebrate the best in photography across the globe. The competition was 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.

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

A photo expert at CEWE UK, says:

“We’re certainly a nation of pet lovers and may find we even take more photos of our pets than anything else – so it felt only right to share some of our favourite pet snaps from the competition to celebrate National Pet Month.

“Animal centred photos are always ideal to put a smile on your face. From cute puppies and cats to horses and chickens on a farm – these images really tick all boxes!
