Our world is absolutely amazing, beautiful, unique, and breathtaking. Sadly, we often forget that we live in such a gorgeous place. We take what we have for granted and destroy the nature around us—hurt the people that are dear to us. Greed and money seem to take over, and we forget that our planet is as fragile as it is beautiful.

The CEWE Photo Award 2021 decided they would do a photography contest under the theme “Our World is Beautiful” to show that our planet is full of amazing places, landscapes, people, cultures, and many more things. To remind us of what is actually important.

Photographers from over 170 countries submitted photos for the chance to win this competition. The final winners will be announced September 16, 2021.
