Hasselblad announces winners of Masters Awards 2018

Hasselblad Masters is widely acclaimed as one of the worldÂ’s most prestigious professional photography competitions.


The winners are chosen through a combination of a public vote and a professional Masters Jury - comprised internationally renowned photographers and imaging experts.

Every Hasselblad Masters award winner will hold the title of Hasselblad Master and be a brand ambassador for two years. 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.

Bronius Rudnickas, Hasselblad Marketing Manager ''Over 30 000 images were submitted to this years competition and that was a record, we are glad to see the competition is growing every year.''

Masters Jury member and professional photographer Tom Oldham said ''It really struck me how progressive many of the entries were this year and how far the entrants were willing to push the brief. These were the photographers who caught my eye - the ballsy, out-there risk-takers who make compelling pictures that refuse to be ignored. Im proud to have helped to get this great kit into their hands - their images deserve it.''
