Photographers under age 24 and those enrolled as full-time photography students can apply for grant awards.
The Ian Parry Photojournalism Grant aims to help young documentary photographers undertake a chosen project and raise their international profile.
This year's contest features two prizes: the Tom Stoddart Award for Excellence and the Ian Parry Photojournalism Grant. Each winner will receive GBP10,000 (US$12,527), Canon photo equipment and more.
Entrants must submit a portfolio and proposal of a project they would undertake if they won the grants.
There is no entry fee. The deadline to apply is Aug. 8.
