The award was started in 2007 by Fiona Gifford a young breast cancer sufferer who wanted to give something back for the wonderful support she received; passionate about photography she decided to have what she thought would be a one-off competition to raise funds for the Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care.  Seven years on she is delighted by the success of the award. Fiona comments,  “Along with the money we have raised for charity, the most gratifying thing about Renaissance is the enthusiasm of the people who have helped make the award what it is today. From judges to photographers, web designers to marketers, lawyers to students, our volunteer committee and supporters from the photography world have given freely of their time and expertise because they believe in our ambition. I think of it as the spirit of Renaissance.”
