Ian Parry Award 24 June 2009 Deadline

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I would like to enlist your help in announcing a reminder for our 2009 deadline: 24th June 2009. Please could you forward this information onto any photography students or photographers of 24 years and under that you work with or teach.
Thank you in advance,
Warm wishes

Ian Parry Scholarship

The Ian Parry Scholarship 2009 deadline is Wednesday 24th June 2009.
All applications must be digital. The FTP instructions and application form will be available from www.ianparry.org

Ian Parry was a photojournalist who died whilst on assignment for the Sunday Times during the Romanian revolution in 1989. He was just 24 years old. The Scholarship was set up by Ian’s friends and family in order to build something positive from such a tragic death.

Each year we hold a competition for photographers who are either attending a full-time recognized photography course or who are 24 years old and under. Entrants must submit:

  • A digital portfolio of 12 images to our FTP, following our guidelines
  • An application form
  • A brief synopsis of a project they would undertake if they won the award

The prize is £3,000 towards an assignment and £500 to those awarded highly commended and commended.

Our 2009 jury is so far confirmed as: Don McCullin Patron, Tom Stoddart Trustee, Eugene Richards and Ian’s family. Judging will be held on the 3rd July at the Frontline Club in London www.frontlineclub.com

As you can imagine this is a significant prize for a photographer and coupled with the continued support of The Sunday Times Magazine, which publishes the winner’s work, the scholarship provides an excellent launch into a professional photography career. Year after year, the award has highlighted the work of some of the industry’s finest emerging talent, all of whom have progressed into professional careers and still support the award.

We are delighted to announce that World Press Photo have again agreed to automatically accept the winner onto their final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam. This is because of so many of our previous winners having attended this prestigious event in recent years.

Once again, our extremely popular and well-attended print exhibition will take place in London at the Getty Images Gallery. The exhibition will run for one week from the 5th August 2009.

Our key sponsors are The Sunday Times, Getty Images and Canon. Our thanks to all our other sponsors and the Frontline Club, British Journal of Photography and the Getty Gallery for their generous support.

Deputy Director
