Hasselblad's Prestigious Masters 2018 Competition Now Open for Entries

Photographers across the globe are invited to submit three images that best demonstrate their photographic ability for the chance to be named a Hasselblad Master.

This year's competition is bigger than ever with 11 categories, including the brand new 'Aerial' sector that pays tribute to Hasselblad's history of aerial photography, with its technology used on several space missions including the first landing on the moon.

The Hasselblad Masters is one of the world's most prestigious professional photographic competitions and gives acclaimed professionals, as well as aspiring newcomers, the chance to make their mark in the world of high-end photography.

2018 Categories include:

  • Fashion/Beauty

Hasselblad Masters are judged on their photographic ability, creativity, compositional skills, conceptual strength and technique -- and are acknowledged to have made a compelling contribution to the art of photography. Each entrant must submit three images per category, with the jury voting on the images rather than the photographer.

Entrants will first face an Internal Jury of Hasselblad staff, experts in the field of photography and supremely knowledgeable about Hasselblad cameras. The Internal Jury will select ten finalists in each category that showcase a high level of technical skill and creative flair. These finalists will then reach the professional Masters Jury, compiled of 24 of the best names in photography. Together with the public vote, which acts as a 25th jury member, the Hasselblad Masters are chosen.

The competition opens for entries from Jan. 24 to June 10. Entries are submitted via

Winners will be announced in January 2018.
