Until yesterday I had never heard the name Cewe, a German company which turns out to be, at least according to its website, "Europe's leading photo service provider" with retail outlets not only all across Europe but in Japan as well. What caught my eye, however, was the announcement of its Photo Award 2023, apparently the largest photo contest in the world and free to enter to boot. The prizes, totaling more than 250,000 euros, are certainly impressive with the top winner receiving a 15,000 euro "one of a kind trip" of choice, 7,500 euros worth of photo equipment, and 2,500 euros worth of Cewe products. Aside from the chance for prizes, contest entrants can feel they are helping a good cause as Cewe promises to donate 10 cents for every photo entered to SOS Children's Villages.
Contest details and rules can be viewed at the link above. There is also an impressive gallery of photos well worth viewing.
