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".
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.
