Ian Parry Scholarship calls for entries

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, World Press Photo automatically accepts the winner onto its final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam. Highly commended and commended entrants will also receive £500 each.

The scholarship is open to photographers aged 24 and under, as well as anyone of any age attending a full-time photographic course. A portfolio of 12 images, alongside a detailed and clear written project proposal must be submitted before 01 August.

The winners will be announced in early September, and their work will go on show at Mother London.

Last year, the scholarship went to young photographer Adrian Fussell. BJP later selected him as one of the 20 photographers to watch in 2013.
