2023 Photo of the Year Winners Revealed!

We are excited to unveil the highly anticipated 2023 photo of the year contest winners! Our monthly and quarterly themed contests are a testament to the talent of our incredible team of photographers. Every month photographers from across the country submit their best images for the chance to win a prize in one of our three contest categories (Bella Baby, Bella Baby Themed Photo, and Bella Life).

A panel of judges from our various regions evaluates and selects monthly and quarterly contest winners throughout the year. At the end of each year, we enter the winners from all the year’s contests into the Photo of the Year contest. Unlike the monthly contests, our photographers’ peers judge the photo of the year contest. Every photographer and Bella Baby employee has the opportunity to cast their vote and recognize the outstanding work of their fellow photographers.

Curious to see all of the 2023 entries? Check out this video showcasing all of our 2023 winners. The voting was very close this year, but without further ado, here are the 2023 photo of the year winners!
