The Renaissance Photography Prize is an international award for emerging and established photographers, raising funds to support younger women with breast cancer through The Lavender Trust.

About the prize

Entry deadline: 3 July 2017 - Deadline extension

This year the prize celebrates its 10th edition. Photographers can enter single images and/or a series of work, with the final exhibition taking 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 an international audience for their work. 

Supporting younger women with breast cancer

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

Each year approximately 5,600 women aged 45 and under are diagnosed with breast cancer. The Lavender Trust is the only fund in the UK dedicated to addressing their particular needs and concerns.

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