The Ian Parry Scholarship is an annual international competition for young photographers (below the age of 24) or who are attending as full-time students at a photographic course.
The Scholarship is named after Ian Parry, a British photojournalist who died on assignment for The Sunday Times during the Romanian revolution of 1989. He was just 24 years old.
From hundreds of entries from over 40 countries, the judges of the Scholarship Board have narrowed it down to three winners, Yuki Iwamura, Capella Buncher and Stefanie Silber.
Iwamura has taken home the Sunday Times Award for Achievement, Buncher has won the Canon Award for Potential, which comes with a mentorship placement with Photo Director of Tortoise Media, Jon Jones, and Silber has been given a special award. You can see their work below.
The Patron of the Ian Parry Scholarship is none other than Sir Don McCullin, the legendary British photojournalist particularly known for his wartime photography.
To enter the competition, entrants had to submit a portfolio and a proposal of a project they would carry out in the event they won the scholarship. Each winner receives £3,500 towards their proposed project and their work will appear in The Sunday Times Magazine.
The judges have also chosen to acknowledge the portfolios of photographers Daniel Harvey Gonzalez, Ingmar Nolting and Subhrajit Sen, whose work didn’t make the final cut as place-winners.
