On Thursday, Sept. 21, 2023 the CEWE photo award was presented at the PHOTOPIA Stage.
The CEWE Photo Award has once again been given the title of "World's largest photo competition", and rightly so: the more than half a million photos were submitted by photography enthusiasts from 147 countries. Most of the photos come from Europe, but photographs were also submitted from Papua New Guinea, Chile or Nepal in the ten possible categories under the motto "Our World is beautiful". Most popular: The category "Nature" with 104,753 uploaded motifs.
The SOS Children's Villages worldwide should be particularly pleased with the high number of submissions, as CEWE donates 10 cents per uploaded photo to them - a total of 50,961 euros!
