The Scholarship was founded by Aidan Sullivan in Ian Parry’s name, which stands as a reminder of the incredible dangers faced by photojournalists working in active conflict zones. The project has been widely supported by key members of the photographic community, notably the scholarship’s patron Sir Don McCullin C.B.E., as well as the genre-defining Susan Meiselas, and David Bailey. Previous Scholarship recipients Jonas Bendiksen, Amelia Troubridge, Ivor Prickett and Simon Roberts have also donated works to be auctioned.
