There’s nothing quite like a series of cute dog photos to put a smile on your face which is why CEWE has released a collection of new images from its CEWE Photo Award – the world’s largest photo competition –  featuring these sweet snaps of our canine friends. 

The 15 pictures have been submitted in this year’s competition, which launched in May and aims to celebrate the best in photography across the globe. The competition is open to everyone – from keen amateur photographers to established professionals.

Until the end of May 2023, entrants can submit photos for free that celebrate the competition’s ‘Our World is Beautiful’ theme. There are 10 categories for budding photographers to enter – from aerial shots and animals to landscapes, travel and culture, highlighting the true beauty of the world around us.

The 1000 overall winners can win prizes totalling more than €250,000. In addition, three monthly winners will be chosen, each receiving a voucher for CEWE photo products worth €100. Charity partner, SOS Children’s Villages Worldwide, has been selected, with 10 Euro cents being donated to the children’s relief organisation for every photo submitted.

A photo expert at CEWE UK, said: “There’s no denying that having a pet is like having another member of the family and often, they are the main focus of our photography! These images capture the unique nature of dogs, showing their fun personalities and of course how cute they can be.”
