Renaissance Photography Prize 2017

10th – 21st October

Winning, shortlisted and finalist entries selected for the 10th edition of the renowned Renaissance Photography Prize.

Renaissance Photography Prize is an international photography award that discovers and celebrates outstanding work from emerging and established photographers, while raising funds to support young women with breast cancer. It has become an important prize for photographers, giving recognition, opportunities and exposure to the selected entrants from all over the world.

Entrants were invited to submit single images in the categories Identity, Border and Life, or series of work in an open category. Thousands of photographs were submitted from countries worldwide. The exhibition showcases some of the best of photography today, with a wide range of photographic practices from 18 countries in the final selection. The exhibition presents the winning, shortlisted and finalist images selected by this year’s judges.

All profit from entry fees is donated to the Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care. Now celebrating its 10th year, it has raised well over £250,000 for the charity since the start in 2007. Currently, around one third of the Lavender Trust’s annual funding comes from Renaissance Photography Prize.

All works exhibited are for sale and 100% of the proceeds from each initial sale goes to the charity. In subsequent sales of any one image, the proceeds will be shared 50/50 between the charity and the photographer.
