With over 606,000 photos from 170 countries submitted, the CEWE Photo Award 2021 is the biggest photo competition in the world. This year's competition motto of "Our world is beautiful," is brought to life by the winning photos in 10 categories.
We're mesmerized by the shortlisted photos in the Animal category (of course, this is Supa Fluffy after all).
The category winner, a herd of elephant titled "Der Clan kuschelt" or "The clan cuddles" by German photographer Josef Schwarz is shown above. The photo shows a clan of elephant huddling together, with the smallest elephants protected in the middle of the group.
Take a look below at the rest of the shortlisted photos in the Animal category of the CEWE Photo Award 2021.
