Over the past 28 successful years the scholarship has played an important role in keeping the values and traditions of photojournalism alive and well, by encouraging and supporting young emerging talent. Each year, an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either under the age of 24 or attending a full-time photographic course is held. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of Ian’s death making this year particularly poignant.
This year, the Ian Parry Scholarship is divided into two categories: The Sunday Times Award for Achievement and The Canon Award for Potential.
Entries must be received by the 5th of July 2019. 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.
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.
Mentorship Programme: a year-long personal Mentorship to the winner of The Canon Award for Potential. The 2019 mentor is former Ian Parry Award recipient and highly respected Magnum photographer Jonas Bendiksen.
The winner of The Canon Award for Potential 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.
