Created by Aidan Sullivan, the Ian Parry Scholarship is dedicated to 24-year-old photojournalist Ian Parry, who died while on assignment for The Sunday Times during the Romanian revolution in 1989.
The Scholarship is a £3500 cash prize that goes toward the cost of a chosen assignment, which will then be published in The Sunday Times Magazine. In addition, te World Press Photo automatically accepts the winner onto its final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam.
Photographers aged 24 and under, as well as anyone of any age attending a full-time photographic course, can enter by submitting a portfolio of 12 images, alongside a detailed written project proposal. "It should be noted that this written section is considered extremely important," say the organisers. "The judges will need to be impressed by your ability to produce a convincing assignment proposal as well as your photography skills."
The deadline for entry is 20 July. There is no entry fee.
Last year, the Scholarship was awarded to Rasel Chowdhury, from Bangladesh, for his series of landscape images Desperate Urbanization. It was the first time that a series of landscape images had won the Ian Parry Scholarship.
