Application for the Ian Parry Scholarship 2020.

Aidan Sullivan then pictures 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 the Ian Parry Scholarship holds an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either attending a full-time photographic course or are under 24.
