Full-time photography students and photographers age 24 or under can apply for a scholarship.
The Ian Parry Scholarship is designed to help young documentary photographers undertake a chosen project and raise their profile in the international photography community. It is named after photographer Ian Parry, who died on assignment in Romania at the age of 24.
The top prize is UK£3,000 (about US$4900) and UK£500 (about US$820) for runners-up. The Sunday Times Magazine publishes a selection of images from the competition and World Press Photo automatically nominates the winner for the Joop Swart Masterclass.
