Every entry is shared

  • Unlike other photography competitions, we share entries as they come in.

  • Why? Photography is about telling your story and we believe photography brings people together from around the world. We don’t want to wait until the entry close period to share with every one.

  • Will that make it unfair? The purpose of the RENNEN photography prize is to not only search for breathtaking landscape photography from around the world but to share the journey. Sharing images before the entry close date is part of the competition and should be considered an event feature.

  • Every publication will credit the photographer.
