Photographers under age 24 and those enrolled as full-time photography students can apply for the scholarship.
The Ian Parry Scholarship aims to help young documentary photographers undertake a chosen project and raise their international profile.
The first place winner will receive GBP3,500 (US$5,363); the runner-up will receive GBP500 (US$766). In addition, the Sunday Times Magazine will publish a selection of images from the competition, and Reportage by Getty Images will add the winner to its online Emerging Talent group.
World Press Photo automatically nominates the winner for its Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam, and Canon provides a choice of equipment.
There is no entry fee. The deadline to apply is July 7.
