The Renaissance Photography Competition
Renaissance is an international photography competition that seeks outstanding images to celebrate the experience of living.
Whether you capture a moment from your own life or explore the theme more generally, Renaissance invites you to enter photographs that express and celebrate "Moments that Matter".
The Renaissance photography competition (the Competition) has been organized by the organizing committee (the Committee) to raise money for the Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care (the Lavender Trust).
The Competition will be judged by a jury of well-known photographers (the Jury) and will result in a high-profile, celebrity exhibition in March 2009 (the Exhibition).
Moments that capture the emotions of life: from sadness to happiness, laughter to loneliness – those moments that show what it means to be human.
- The human body
Moments that celebrate the physical: the beauty of the human form, the intensity and joy of physical activity or the variety of sensory experience.
- The world we live in
Moments that capture our experience of the world around us, which is a constant source of wonder and inspiration: details from nature, landscapes, images of wildlife or different cultures, the achievements of the man-made world.
- Renaissance prize – £3,000 awarded to overall winner
- Category prizes – £500 best in category; £250 for runner-up
- Exhibition – 60 finalists will have the chance to be exhibited and sell their work
Entries may be in black and white or in colour. Retouching / manipulation of images is accepted provided that all works are original works and not copies of other people’s works.
Prepare your entry. You can enter as many categories as you like, and you can enter as many images as you like. Each entry should be a JPG image of not more than 800 pixels on the longest side, and not more than 200 Kb in file size.
Sign up to the site. You’ll be asked for your contact details (so we can notify you if you win), and you can choose your own password. Once you’ve registered you can log in to your own private area on the site where you can upload your entry.
Once you’ve uploaded your entry you’ll need to pay the entry fee. This is either £15 for a single image, or £25 for up to four images. The entry fee can be paid by credit or debit card using PayPal, and your entry fee goes to The Lavender Trust to support younger people with breast cancer.
