Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

The Ian Parry Scholarship 2012

SingleSideInvite.indd Ian Parry was a photojournalist who died while on assignment for The Sunday Times during the Romanian revolution in 1989. That was 20 years ago, he was just 24 years of age. The Ian Parry Scholarship was created by Aidan Sullivan, then picture editor and Ian’s friends and family 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. Entrants must submit examples of their work from their portfolio and a brief synopsis of a project they would undertake if they won.

Save The Children are again sponsoring the award by offering one of the finalists an all expenses paid assignment and in addition to this, the World Press Photo automatically accepts the winner onto its final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam. This is a significant prize for any photographer and continued with the support of Getty Images, Canon Europe & Sunday Times Magazine, which publishes all the finalist’s work; the scholarship provides an excellent launch into a professional career in photography.

“The IPS is a unique chance for emerging photojournalists to not only have their work assessed and circulated within the wider context of the professional photographic industry but also published in a major national newspaper. Entering awards has now become the most effective way to showcase your work and I would encourage more students to invest in this kind of free promotion” Rebecca McClelland Creative Director IPS.

Once again our extremely well attended exhibition will be held at the Getty Images Gallery / 46 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DX
