Entry Fee and Number of Entries
The Competition consists of two sections: the single-image competition (the Single-image Competition) and the series competition (the Series Competition).
You can enter as many single images, series or combination of single images and series (the Entries) as you wish to the Competition.
The costs of entering (the Entrance Fee) are:
SINGLE IMAGE COMPETITION

- £45 for up to 6 images
- The entry fee for more than 6 single images will be calculated using the above scale. Discounts for multiple images apply only when uploaded and paid together.
There are three categories in the Single-image Competition. You can enter the same image in more than one category and each time counts as one image for the purposes of calculating the entry fee. For example if you wish to enter the same image into two categories this will count as two images.
Twelve images in each category will be selected by the judges and exhibited at the Renaissance Photography Prize exhibition which will take place in London in late Autumn 2015 (the Exhibition).
- £55 per entry (5 – 8 images from one body of work, plus project statement)
