Ian Parry Scholarship
02 / 08 / 2016Return to Blog
The Ian Parry Scholarship 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 they 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. Each winner will receive $3,500 for their chosen project, as well as mentorship and other forms of professional support. The 2020 Deadline is July 9. Go to ianparry.org/scholarship for more details.
