International Women’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women around the world.
To support this, CEWE have partnered with SheClicks, a community for female photographers, to launch the ‘Beauty of Black and White’ photography competition – a contest that is open exclusively to women. To champion their work and to celebrate female photographers, CEWE have released a collection of 10 standout images from the competition.
The competition launched in January this year, and will run until the end of March 2023. It aims to give female photographers a platform to submit their favourite snaps and showcase their photography. The winner will receive a £100 voucher to spend across CEWE products and a gifted product from Lensbaby. There will be four runner-up winners who will each receive a £50 CEWE photo product voucher.
