Time running out for Masters Applications

Photographers who want their images to be considered for the prestigious 2014 Hasselblad Masters Awards

Have until August 31 to get their entries in. In all there are 12 categories youcan enter, and the title of Master will be awarded to the photographer judged to have submittedthe best picture in that section, the criteria being creativity, composition, conceptualstrength and technical skill.

New this year is an underwater category for images that have been captured using a professionalhousing, while the 'Up & Coming' category has been renamed 'Project//21' and is open to amateurs,students, assistants and young professionals who are 21 years old or younger.

In a big change to the format, which will see the competition open to more photographers than everbefore, the decision has been made to allow entries from both medium format and 35mm-styleDSLRs providing that whatever camera is used is delivering a minimum resolution of16 megapixels. Those shooting with film are also eligible to enter, and by throwing the competitionopen in this way the hope is that it will encourage the largest entry ever and encourage still moreof the world's great photographers to take part.

Applicants are invited to submit three images in one or more of the following categories Fine Art,Landscapes/Nature, Wedding/Social, Portrait, Fashion/Beauty, Editorial, Products, Architecture,General, Wildlife, Project//21 and Underwater.
