© Anastasia Taylor-Lind - Overall winner Renaissance Photography Prize 2012.
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.
All profit from entries is donated to The Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care, UK. In the five years since its inception, Renaissance has raised over £200,000 for the charity.
Entering gives photographers a chance to have their 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 London gallery.
Photographers can enter single images (categories Expression, Ordinary and In Between) or a series of work in an open category. The competition is open to everyone and welcomes entries from all countries.
In previous years our distinguished panel of judges, all of whom donate their time and expertise, has included Martin Parr, Eamonn McCabe and editors, curators and directors from respected UK institutions such as The Photographers' Gallery, Michael Hoppen Gallery, Rhubarb Rhubarb and the Sunday Times Magazine.
This year Renaissance is delighted to announce the 2013 panel:
Monica Allende - Picture Editor, The Sunday Times Magazine
Simon Bainbridge - Editor, British Journal of Photography
Julia Fullerton-Batten - Photographer
Miranda Gavin - Deputy and Online Editor, HotShoe International
Nadav Kander - Photographer
Chris Littlewood - Director of Photography, Flowers Gallery, UK
Brett Rogers - Director, The Photographers' Gallery, UK
