Since then the competition has become an established fixture in the photography world, last year attracting over 5,225 entries from 67 countries. It has enjoyed amazing support from photographers, editors, curators and photography organisations and aims to raise even more funds this year.
The Renaissance Photography Prize is an international photography award that showcases outstanding photography from emerging or established photographers while raising funds to support young women with breast cancer.
By entering you’ll have a chance to have your work judged by some of the top names in the industry and win prizes with a total value of over £5,000, including cash, photographic equipment, portfolio reviews and the winning series published in HotShoe Magazine. In addition, 60 selected photographs will form part of the Renaissance exhibition held this autumn in a prestigious gallery in London, England.
Photographers can enter single images (categories Expression, Ordinary and In Between) or a series of work in an open category.
Renaissance was founded six years ago by Fiona Gifford, a lawyer and keen amateur photographer who was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 34. “During my recovery period, day-to-day concerns became irrelevant, and I became more aware of the moments that really matter in life - moments of emotion, human connection, and wonder at the beauty of nature. What better way to represent those moments than through photography?”
