“The IPS is a unique chance for emerging photojournalists to not only have their work assessed and circulated within the wider context of the professional photographic industry but also published in a major national newspaper. Entering awards has now become the most effective way to showcase your work and I would encourage more students to invest in this kind of free promotion” -Rebecca McClelland Creative Director IPS.
In honor of Ian Parry's memory, the Ian Parry Scholarship was started to give young and emerging photographers, funding for a project and an oppotunity to have that project published and exhibited. This year the prize has been increased to £3,500 for the winning recipient and £500 to 2 finalists. The deadline is fast approaching, set at July 20th, so get your portfolio's ready and submitted!
