CALL FOR ENTRIES The Hasselblad Masters Award 2008

Along with making some of the most advanced high-end cameras on the market, Hasselblad also hosts the distinguished Masters Award every year. The competition is not exclusive to world-famous lifers in photography, or Hasselblad users: newcomers with promise, or medium-format analog shooters are welcome to enter. An important guideline requires that entrants take at least 51% of their income from photography.

Twelve Masters Awards are given each year, and the chosen photographers are presented in an annual calendar. A H3D digital camera system will be provided to all of the winners for two periods during 2008: a "free" period of sponsored work and a shoot for the commemorative Masters Awards book, to be published in Fall 2008. This may seem a bit outrageous, until one remembers that the H3D system, and many more of Hasselblad's products, rival the price of small sports cars.

From Hasselblad's website:

This year, we are opening the 2008 contest to all established professional photographers, regardless of camera brand. We will award 9 Hasselblad Masters designations, accepting submissions in Fine Art, Nature/Landscape, Social/Wedding, Portrait, Fashion, Editorial, Product, Architecture, and General Photography categories. We have even established a special category for up and coming photographers that is open to all professional photographers, regardless of length of time in the business or camera format used.
