Una somma di 3.500 dollari, un programma di mentoring per un anno in compagnia del fotografo documentarista Tom Stoddart, attrezzatura fotografica offerta da Canon e la possibilità di essere ammessi ad un corso di specializzazione ad Amsterdam: sono i premi per giovani fotografi messi in palio dalla Ian Parry Scholarship, una borsa dedicata al fotogiornalista del The Sunday Times ucciso durante la Rvoluzione romena del 1989.

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 he holds an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either attending a full-time photographic course or are under 24.
