Our Favorite Happy New Year Images For Design Purposes

In continuation of our favorite images series, we explore our top Happy New Year images. Old Year has been a challenging year for all, so we can’t wait to ring in the New Year - with some wonderful imagery, of course!

Relevant, emotive pictures can strengthen your marketing campaign by making your online content more engaging and visually appealing. Here at PikWizard, we host a library of free stock photos of a New Year celebration that can be used to bring life, color, and interest to blogs and social media posts.

But what kind of images give the best New Year vibes?


The New year always starts with a bang, with an explosion of firework displays happening across the globe, so it’s only fitting we kick our list off with them as well!

A firework is one of the best opportunities for taking great pictures and improve your stock of photos. There are not a lot of events as a new year (maybe Christmas), these moments can be great to have some new background ideas. With this kind of event, you can make some great christmas images, firework or other New Year thematic images... 

Here, we love the bold, sparkling colors that only the festive explosions can bring! Fireworks always look spectacular, and their majesty has been perfectly captured in this photo. Be careful for useful photos to take with standard photo size

The contrast of the bright fireworks against the dark night sky helps evoke the feeling of New Year’s Eve just before midnight.


For most people, the new year also begins with a celebratory drink!

Our next top New Year’s image is these elegant glasses of champagne. The champagne flutes full of the bubbly drink make for a great photo. You can imagine looking out onto the horizon and cheering to a new year full of new opportunities.

New Growth

Speaking of new opportunities, we’ve chosen our next image to capture that sentiment. Celebrating a new year is all about looking forward to new adventures and growth!

For us, this image of tiny green shoots emerging from the dirt symbolizes a positive future in the Happy New Year - one where we can all grow and look forward, leaving any unpleasantries of the old year behind us!

Writing Resolutions

This one is for all the planners and organizers! This image is full of memories of sitting down on the first of January with a notebook and pen ready to document New Year’s resolutions for the coming year.

The above image is full of good intentions – a blank page ready to fill with all the hopes and dreams that the new year can bring. Here’s to setting the new year off right!

Toasting With Friends

Toasting to a prospective good year with friends is another essential part of the holiday but gathering in large groups is sadly still not possible just yet.

However, this reminiscent image reminds us of the cheer and joy around this time of year. There is a sense of bubbling excitement, and we look forward to sharing this time again in an imminent post-COVID world!

New Dawn

And finally, after all the New Year’s Eve festivities have run their course, there comes a new dawn and a new day. This sunrise image contains some stunning colours and the mirrored sun gives a pleasing sense of symmetry.

Hopefully, 2021 will begin with a new dawn as beautiful as this!
