Brett Rogers, Mary McCartney, Michael Hoppen, Monica Allende and Brigitte Lardinois will select 100 photos from thousands of entries to be exhibited at the prestigious Mall Galleries on London’s Pall Mall in June 2012. The shortlisted entries will be exhibited for one week, culminating in a celebrity private view on the evening of 13th June 2012, where the winners will be announced.

Renaissance was founded in 2006 by Fiona Gifford, a 39-year-old lawyer and keen amateur photographer who was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 34.

“During my recovery period, day-to-day concerns became irrelevant, and I became more aware of the moments that really matter in life - moments of emotion, human connection, and wonder at the beauty of nature. What better way to represent those moments than through photography?”

In the four years since its inception, Renaissance has raised over £160,000 for the Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care.

Renaissance is open for entries between 5th December 2011 and 24th February 2012.

There will be five categories this year, Expression, Environment, Memory, Perspective and Disorientation. For further details please visit www.renaissancephotography.org
