Ian Parry Scholarship for Photographer 2021

Ian Parry Scholarship for Photographer 2021

 


Applications open April 9th 2021 and close July 9th 2021

Patron: Sir Don McCullin C.B.E.

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.

The Ian Parry Scholarship is divided into two categories: The Sunday Times Award for Achievement and The Canon Award for Potential.

The entry criteria for both is the same and the judges will make their decisions based on the individual merits of the entries. Entrants must submit a portfolio and a clear proposal of a project they would undertake if they won the scholarship.

There is no entry fee.

Benefits include:

Each winner will receive $3,500 towards their chosen project.

Canon Europe continues to support the Scholarship and loans equipment to the winners.

Attend a portfolio review day with leading industry experts in London (covid permitting).

Mentorship Programme, we offer a year-long personal Mentorship to the winner of The Canon Award for Potential. 

Both winners will have the opportunity to take part in the Transmissions Programme at Visa Pour L’Image in Perpignan.

World Press Photo, automatically accepts the winner of the Achievement Award into its final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam.

Your work will appear in The Sunday Times Magazine, our media sponsor.

The scholarship is supported by the generous donations from The Sunday Times, Canon Europe, The Incite Project and Verbatim.
