The Hasselblad Masters is one of the world’s most prestigious biannual professional photographic competitions and gives acclaimed professionals, as well as aspiring newcomers, the chance to make their mark in the world of photography.
Photographers around the world were invited to submit three images that best demonstrate their photographic ability for the chance to be named a Hasselblad Master. The Hasselblad Masters 2018 competition featured 11 categories and received a record-breaking 31,500 entries. The number of participating photographers has seen an increase of 175% this year compared to the Hasselblad Masters 2016.
Every Hasselblad Masters award winner will obtain the title of ‘Hasselblad Master’. In addition, they will receive a brand new Hasselblad medium format camera and be invited to shoot for a collaborative project with Hasselblad. This project will be printed and released in the bi-annual Hasselblad Masters book.
Winners will receive their awards, medium format cameras, and trophies at a special Photokina 2018 ceremony in Cologne, Germany this September.
