This year marks the 30th anniversary of 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 we hold an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either attending a full-time photographic course or are under 24.
