At the pulse of photo culture

It has been more than 110 years since Carl Wöltje founded the “Photographic Institute” and thus laid the foundation for today’s CEWE Foundation. Since then, the photo culture has been inseparably interwoven with the corporate culture and is an essential part of the Oldenburg company. At CEWE, this includes various projects such as photo exhibitions, photo competitions and photo festivals lasting several days, which inspire amateur and professional photographers alike. As the organizer of the CEWE Photo Award, the company regularly calls on photography enthusiasts from all over the world to submit their most beautiful motifs. Last time, a total of 606,289 photographs were submitted, making this competition the largest of its kind in the world. “As a company, we stand for photography in all its facets and above all for the joy of to capture great moments as an emotion in pictures and thus to create more than just an image of reality. We are delighted to be an active part of the diverse photo festivals in Germany again this year,” says Bastian Freese from the Photo Culture Marketing department at CEWE.
