Renaissance Photography Prize 2017

Publish Date: Apr 21, 2017

RENAISSANCE PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE

Renaissance Photography Prize is an international award that showcases outstanding photography from emerging and established photographers while raising funds to support young women with breast cancer.

This year the prize celebrates its 10th edition and invites entrants from anywhere in the world to enter by 26 June 2017. The exhibition of the selected finalists will take place in October in Central London.

The prize is looking to discover talent and celebrate the best in photography, giving image makers access to new opportunities and international audience for their work. Entering gives photographers the chance to have their work seen by a panel of some of the industry’s most influential photography critics, as well as being exhibited and published.

Photographers can enter single images and/or series of work. The competition is open to everyone and welcomes entries from all countries. All profit from entry fees is donated to The Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care, UK, a charity that supports younger women affected by the disease. Currently, one third of the Lavender Trust’s annual funding comes from the Renaissance Photography Prize.

 

The Renaissance Photography Prize exhibition presents the judges’ selection of some of the best international photography today. The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony, late autumn 2017. The annual Portfolio Review will take place during the exhibition weeks, where anyone has the chance to get their work reviewed by gallery directors, curators, agents and editors.

Renaissance Photography Prize was founded in 2007 by Fiona Gifford following her diagnosis with breast cancer at the age of 34. Since then it has raised over £250,000 for the Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care.

The prize is now managed and curated by Monica Takvam with the help of a team of dedicated volunteers.
