Ian Parry was a photojournalist who died while on assignment for The Sunday Times during the Romanian revolution in 1989. He was just 24 years of age.
Aidan Sullivan, then picture editor, and Ian’s friends and family created the Ian Parry Scholarship in order to build something positive from such a tragic death.
Each year we hold an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either attending a full-time photographic course or are under 24.
Entrants must submit a portfolio and a brief synopsis of a project they would undertake if they won the scholarship. The prize consists of £3,500 towards their chosen assignment £500 to those awarded Highly Commended and Commended. There is no fee for entry. Application details here Details for 2105 will be forthcoming
The Sunday Times Magazine published the finalist’s work, which shines a spotlight on these young photographers and provides an excellent launch into a professional career in photography.
