February was the busiest month so far for Our World is Beautiful, with more UK entries than ever. Which of course made it even trickier to choose our monthly winner! In the end though, we picked this fun, summery photo by Joe Kirby.
Summer Fun – Joe Kirby
Taken in Castleford, UK
“My nephew playing with his brothers on a beautiful summer’s day in the garden.”
We loved the beautiful light and sense of joy in this photo, which perfectly encapsulates a childhood summer in Britain – when we’re lucky enough to bask in a sunny day! If you’d like to pick up a few tips to help you capture fantastic photos just like this one, then take a look at our post on how to take better photographs of people.
Congratulations Joe on taking such a brilliant snapshot, and we hope you enjoy spending your £30 CEWE Photoworld voucher.

As you can see, we’ve received some excellent entries to our photography competition so far, but if you haven’t entered yet, there’s still plenty of time. The competition runs until the 30th June, and you can enter up to 25 of your best images, so there’s no excuse not to give it a go. Not only could you be one of our monthly UK winners, but you could also be in the running for one of over a thousand other prizes – including the grand prize of an all-expenses paid holiday worth 5000 euros!
