Photographers have until 07 July to enter this year’s Ian Parry Scholarship.
Launched in 1991 in honour of Ian Parry, a 24-year-old photojournalist who was tragically killed whilst on assignment for The Sunday Times in December 1989 in Romania, the Scholarship comes with a £3500 grant for the production of a documentary body of work. The winner is also automatically added to the final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam, and will join the Reportage by Getty Images agency as an Emerging Talent.
“This year is the 25th Anniversary of the Ian Parry Scholarship,” says Rebecca McClelland, the organisation’s creative director. “We will be remembering Ian and marking this special occasion with a series of new free events, publications and exhibitions.”
She adds: “The scholarship provides an important platform to showcase your work and also the chance to be mentored by us in the photographic industry. We are looking for stories that have been well-researched with originality and not necessarily in far flung destinations.”

FORUM is an informal, monthly event for early career artists, students and graduates. It is a platform for practitioners from various disciplines to exchange ideas, experience and opinions on visual culture.
FORUM is diverse in its nature and has no fixed form. Each event will have its own premise, which will provide a catalyst for discussion on a range of issues in the context of contemporary arts practice.
Every month we will invite artists to show or discuss new or unfinished works that relate to the month's theme in an informal setting, for feedback and discussion. Get in touch if you'd like to share your work!
This blog is where we post up all FORUM's activity and things we want to shout about. Email us to submit any links, opinions or questions and to promote any events you are involved in.
