The Gordon Parks Center for Culture and Diversity at Fort Scott Community College began the Gordon Parks International Photography Competition in 1989 to honor Fort Scott photographer Gordon Parks.

Each year the college gives prizes of $1,000, $500 and $250 to photographers whose images reflect the important themes in the life and works of Gordon Parks.

The competition has become a showcase for the best of American documentary and news photography.
