The Ian Parry Scholarship programme is inviting entries for its youth photojournalism contest from photographers under the age of 24 years and from those enrolled as full-time photography students. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Ian Parry Scholarship

The contest, which is free, is aimed at helping young documentary photographers undertake a chosen project and raise their international profile.

This year’s contest features two prizes: the Award for Achievement and the Award for Potential. Each winner will receive US$3,500, Canon photo equipment and more.

World Press Photo automatically nominates the Achievement winner for its Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam. The Potential winner will receive one year of mentorship from a veteran photojournalist.

Applications close on July 5, 2020.

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 pictures 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 the scholarship holds an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either attending a full-time photographic course or are under 24.
