Exhibition of photographs from the biggest international photography competition

Visit the photography exhibition in City Centre One (West and East) and contribute to the happy childhood of children in SOS Children's Village Croatia! You can view the beautiful photographs on display from 14 to 27 October.

 This is a charity exhibition, so you can support the children growing up in SOS Children's Villages in Croatia by making a donation through the 2D codes or with the help of our SOS representatives as you explore the displayed images.

Exhibition 'CEWE Photo Award 2019 – The Biggest International Photography Competition’, which we organized in partnership with CEWE, will feature 10 best photographs from Croatia and 10 best photographs from around the world, chosen from 448.152 images submitted worldwide. A number of authors and images received valuable awards. CEWE donated 10 euro cents for each photo entered to SOS Children's Villages around the world. A total of EUR 44,815.22 was raised and all of it will go towards supporting and helping children.

Igor Roth, CEWE Key Account Manager for the region said: ‘We are proud that the CEWE photography competition has been declared the biggest such contest in the world for the second year in a row, but we are even prouder of raising more than EUR 44.000 for SOS Children's Villages around the world. We organized this exhibition to share some of the beautiful images we received from all parts of the world with our community, while also raising awareness of need to support the children who live in SOS families.’

Ljiljana Varga, SOS Children's Village Croatia FR/PR department director added: ‘Each image represents one fleeting moment captured by a skilled photographer, but they are all a product of a lot of effort and love. We show the same commitment, love and support to the children growing up in our big SOS family in every moment of their childhood. Thanks to this photography exhibition from our CEWE friends, we have a valuable opportunity to invite all visitors to donate and support the happy childhood of 240 children and youth in SOS Children's Village Croatia.’

CEWE has been a loyal partner and friend to Association SOS Children's Village Croatia for years. For the last three years they have continually enriched the lives of children living in SOS Children's Villages with their imaginative world of photography. As a result of regular workshops for our young photo enthusiasts, we also organized several successful exhibitions in the SOS Children's Village, and CEWE makes sure to capture all our birthdays, anniversaries and other important moments for future remembrance. We look forward to new joint projects and creating unforgettable memories together.
