Ian Parry Scholarship extends deadline to 10 August

Now in its 24th year, 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 award is designed for documentary photographers and visual journalists, and is judged by patron Don McCullin, photographers Tom Stoddart, Harriet Logan, Simon Roberts and Lynsey Addario, and director of photography Jon Jones of The Sunday Times.

This year, candidates have until 10 August to enter, after the deadline was extended. The winner, who will receive a £3500 cash prize, will be revealed in early September at the Visa pour l’Image photojournalism festival in Perpignan. Two finalists will each receive £500 ans see their work published, with the winner’s images, in The Sunday TImes Magazine and exhibited at Mother in London.

Save The Children will offer an assignment to one of the finalists, while Canon will provide camera equipment to the winner.

“This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with us and our new exhibition partners Mother, Save The Children, The Sunday Times Magazine and Canon,” says Rebecca McClelland, deputy director of the award. “We are pleased to announce a new series of free seminars, portfolio reviews and workshops for all finalists in collaboration with Mother, led by industry professionals who support the award.”
