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

    Now in its tenth year, the prize is looking to discover talent and celebrate the best in photography, giving image makers access to new opportunities and world-wide audience for their work.

    The following Single-image categories are available:

    • Life
    • Identity
    • Border

    The Series category is instead Open (no theme). All projects are eligible regardless of subject or theme, providing the photographs entered are related and part of the same body of work.

    You can enter as many images as you wish. Entries may be taken using digital or film. Retouching/manipulation of digital images is accepted provided that all works are original works and not copies of other people’s works.

    You retain copyright of your entries.

    Entry fees start at 18 GBP / 21 EUR / 22 USD.


    Open to all professional and amateur photographers worldwide. If you are under 16 you must have a parent or legal guardian's permission to enter.


    Twelve images in each category will be selected by the judges and exhibited at the Renaissance Photography Prize exhibition which will take place in London in late Autumn 2017.

    • 1000 GBP (approx. 1,240 USD) cash prize
