Entries have now opened for the CEWE Photo Awards, the largest and most lucrative of the world’s photography competitions.
When submissions close next year, the panel of judges will award prizes worth more than €250,000 to 1,000 winners, including long haul holidays and high-tech camera kit. Categories range from nature and architecture to sport and technology, and in the current crisis organisers are encouraging entrants to find beauty in the small things under the theme ‘Our world is beautiful’.
