Applications for the Ian Parry Scholarship, which supports current full-time photography students and young photographers 24 years of age and under, are due August 1. Details are available on the PDNEdu blog.
This year’s winner will be announced in early September, during the Visa pour l’Image Festival in Perpignan. The winner will receive a monetary award of £3,500 ($4,487) and their photos will be published in the Sunday Times magazine Spectrum and exhibited at MOTHER, London for two weeks during September 2013. Two commended photographers will also be selected for publication, exhibition and a monetary award of £500 ($640). Both the winner and commended photographers will be automatically added to the list of finalists for the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam, and all scholarship finalists will be invited to attend a series of free seminars, portfolio reviews and workshops in collaboration with ad agency MOTHER, led by industry professionals who support the award.
The 2013 scholarships will be judged by Don McCullin, Tom Stoddart, Harriet Logan, Jon Jones and Simon Roberts.
Past scholarship winners have included Sebastian Liste, Maisie Crow, Jonas Bendicksen and Simon Roberts.
