The Ian Parry Scholarship is named after a British photojournalist who died in 1989 while on assignment for The Sunday Times. It is available each year to full-time photographic students under the age of 24.

Interested students are required to submit work samples along with an essay explaining how they would use the scholarship money if they won. The scholarship consists of a $5,500 (£3500) scholarship award and a $785 (£500) Highly Commended and Commended award. In addition, Save The Children offers one of the finalists an all expenses paid assignment.

The World Press Photo automatically accepts the winner onto its final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam. Further support is provided by Getty Images, Canon Europe & Sunday Times Magazine, which publishes all the finalist’s work, providing the recipient an excellent launch into a professional career in photography.

This scholarship is a unique combination of scholarship funding as well as an opportunity for emerging photojournalists to have their work assessed and circulated within the professional photographic industry and published in a major national newspaper.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JUNE of each year, and the award amount is usually up to $5,500.
